Life-sized Tachikoma loose on the streets of Tokyo (update: video!)

da Engadget di Joseph L. Flatley

You know, we see a lot of kick-ass vehicles ‘round Engadget HQ, so it’s easy to grow a little jaded. Who can forget that Batman Tumbler we saw tearing up the asphalt last summer? Or the Halo Warthog
— complete with UN Space Command BDUs? Sure, either of those would
make for a fun-filled weekend (or a lifetime of weekends), but what
about something a little more suited to urban environs? Next time
you’re in Tokyo, make sure you look up a gentleman named San Kougei,
who put together a joystick-piloted replica Tachikoma (of Ghost In The Shell
fame). Who knows? Maybe he’ll even let you take it for a spin. We’re
looking forward to seeing some YouTube video of this bad boy, but in
the meantime we present you with one more pic (after the break).

Update: Video found… from 2006. Hey, it’s new to (most of) you!
