Real Life Mecha Suit By Japanese Enthusiasts (+VIDEO)
A Japanese group called Suidobashi Heavy Industry has created an operational mecha suite named “Vaudeville”. This 4,500 kg metallic mechanical suit uses both existing soft- and hard-wear and contains a human pilot capsule. The mechanism is guided by an Xbox Kinect motion tracking system and utilizes a smartphone to interpret the human movements and send commands to mecha’s limbs and muscles. The creators plan to include optional water-pistols into the contraption design.
