Students at the Aichi Institute of Technology have built a decent version of the cult classic giant robot, Tetsujin-28. This is the 7th version that they’ve built so far, standing around 140cm (3’7″) tall and weighing 19kg (42 lbs). The team regularly attends various science and technology events to show off their robots to kids, who seem to get a kick out of them. Of course, it’ll be awhile before they get around to building the 28th version… maybe by then they’ll be able to build it at the correct scale!
