Amazon Selling 12ft Tall Robot That Shoots Off BB Rounds When its Pilot Smiles

What do you get for the person who has everything? Amazon Japan now has a completely terrifying answer to that question in the form of Kuratas: a 12-foot-tall, $1 million mech robot that shoots off BB rounds in response to the pilot smiling.

 

 

The real-life Transformer, made by blacksmith Kogoro Kurata, weighs 5 tons and has the capability to shoot off 6,000 rounds per minute. Amazon labels the machine a "toy," thereby making it the most deeply alarming toy of all time (except for maybe Furbies). The arms are sold separately, and it doesn't qualify for Amazon Prime shipping, in case you were wondering.
