Robot lovers – get some tissues. Straight out of Tokyo (where else) is Kuratas – the first boardable robot; half robot, half car.

The 4 meter high robot seats a single person who can not only control it from inside, but remotely via 3G, and a little replica voodoo version.

At 1 million EUR it isn’t cheap, but if you have the dosh you’ve got a range of attachments, each at a price of about 100,000 EUR, which can be added upon purchase.

And yes Batman, it does come in black, as well as 15 other colours and a cup holder (for 80 EUR).

      That’s exactly what I thought when I first saw it. And when you build your own you can choose the blue and grey colour or the dark grey colour. Both will look like it came from Ghost in The Shell!
