Building the World’s Largest Robot

Inspired by “Mobile Suit Gundam,” one of the most popular anime series in Japan, engineer Masaaki Nagumo began building his very own larger-than-life robots.

Each is fully operational and can be controlled by the user from within. His latest creation is the LW Mononofu, based off of the anime he watched as a child. Standing at 28 feet tall and weighing close to 5 tons, it is the world’s largest fully operational robot.

While Masaaki believes his greatest work is still yet to come, he’s hopeful that creations like these will inspire future generations of tinkerers.
