Giant moving Gundam robot is unveiled in Japan
A life-sized Gundam robot has been unveiled in Japan ahead of its opening on 19 December at the Gundam Factory Yokohama.
The moving robot was originally scheduled to open in October, but this was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The finished robot has been unveiled for previews, ahead of the official opening, Kotaku reports.
24 articulating joints
The 25 tonnes, 18-metres tall Gundam robot is modelled on a robot from the 1970s anime series Mobile Suit Gundam. It has an impressive range of movements due to its 24 articulating joints.
As well as the large robot, the Gundam Factory Yokohama has several other experiences, such as the Gundam Lab. Spread over two floors, visitors can learn more about the technology that was used to build the robot.
