A new viral video was released that claims to have an operating robot called the ‘Kuratas’ Mechwarrior. The robot can be operated by your iPhone and shoots bullets with just a smile.

Made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo, this "Eco-Friendly" and "safe for humans" robot allows for a pilot to enter the cockpit of the "Kuratas’ Mechwarrior and operate the machinery by 3G-operated phone devices. The video goes on to give you step-by-step instructions on how to properly operate the ‘Kuratas’ Mechwarrior. The top speed for the robot is 10 km/h and runs on a diesel engine. Suidobashi also claims that the 'Kuratas' Mechwarrior's greatest feature is its water bottle canon that "from time to time, will hit its target." I personally believe that the ‘Kuratas’ Mechwarrior’s greatest feature is the ‘The Smile Shot,’ which utilizes the pilot's smile to unleash six thousand BB bullets a minute.

Be warned however, "not to cause a shooting spree by smiling too much." Stats for Smartphone-Operated Warrior Machines Trending: Older & Chilly
