Japan mech factory creates $20,000 mech just for kids

Only in Japan: mech factory creates $20,000 mech 'just for kids'

| Technology in Vehicles News | Posted: Apr 23, 2013 7:32 am

When I was a kid, all I wanted was a NES - these days, kids have all the fun with iPad's, PCs, 360s, and more. Well, if you're from a well off family, Japanese mech factory Sakakibara Machinery Works could make your kids' dreams a reality.

 

 

The mecha manufacturers are making a mech for kids, priced at a whopping $20,000. Sakakibara Machinery Works have built adult-sized mechs before, named "The Landwalker", but these kid-sized mechs are named the Kid's Walker Cyclops. The pint-sized mech features one seat, and a drill - which doesn't look functional.

The Kid's Walker Cyclops is actually the second mech released for kids, with the company unveiling a bigger version a few years ago. The new version is slimmer and looks more streamlined. Imagine turning up to a school yard fight in one of these bad boys?!
