Peace in our time

Nobody said anything in the media today which annoyed me, so it is time to see what our kooky cousins in Japan have been up to.

First up - a walking mech. With guns. Sure, the video available on the site makes it clear that the thing is made of fibreglass and can move at about 1 kilometre an hour, but who cares. An armoured robot's journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step...

Second - somebody has created a kit replica of the motorcyle from Akira. It is built on a scooter platform, and looks kind of dinky, but it is a postive development. Honda released a prototype some time ago that was heavily influenced by the design, so hopefully it is just a matter of time before I can ride my Akira-type bike to my job at the giant armoured robot factory...
