Last wednesday, TV Asahi’s Nanikore Chin Hakkei a japanese Television program showcase a 60 year old man(Hitoshi Takanashi) that built a giant beetle robot in his own garageĀ  for 11years in eastern Japan, prefecture of Ibaraki, he named it Kabutom RX-03 which came from the Kabuto Mushi, the Japanese name for Rhinoceros Beetle(note: this beetle type robot is actually the third beetle robot that Takahashi san created). The Kabutom RX-03 is 11meters long(about36 feet) and the width is 9.5 meters(31 feet ),weights 15 tonnes, currently it is also the largest one. The Kabutom Rx-03 can be controlled from within the cockpit or by radio controller.It has wheels in its undercarriage in addition to the six insectoid legs.

Whats next? I hope a mech like zoid? or a gundam? Love the technological advancement, I hope that I can see what would it reach…(this things must not be used in human war, this could be a feat for commoners now but maybe later it will be used in wars) very scary uwaaaaaa! Thats if for now thank you for reading.
