Wakamaru and FST suit make Mobile Suit Gundam anime a reality

The world of anime is once again invading the real world with the debut of the FST (flexible sensor tube). The FST is a controller suit developed by Kyokko Inc. designed to control the Wakamaru robot. Using the FST, a human's movements are mimicked perfectly by the Wakamaru robot, essentially making the Mobile Suit Gundam fiction a present day reality. A live demonstration of the technology is scheduled for the next Robo Japan 2008, but for now you can check out the FST and the Wakamaru in action here.
