Japanese Robot Takes the Word 'Cockpit' Literally

I've always wanted a giant bipedal robot to drive around. I've also wanted said robot to have the cockpit in the robot's crotch to provide me with an easy pun. Finally, my prayers are answered!

This robot model, called Chubu 01, was designed by Kazushi Kobayashi in Japan. I love the aesthetic of it: futuristic yet also somehow retro. Like it was designed in some alternate 1950s. Also, you drive around in its crotch, which obviously provides me with a certain amount of base, childish amusement. [Booooooom via Notcot]
