It is called ARCHAX after the archaeopteryx of the dinosaurs. The robot has cockpit displays that receive images from cameras attached to the outside, so the pilot can maneuver joystick arms from inside its torso.

The 3,5-tonne robot, which will be unveiled at the Japan Mobility Expo later this month, has two modes: an upright “robot mode” and a “vehicle mode” in which it can travel at up to 10km per hour .

"Japan is very good at animation, games, robots and cars, so I thought it would be great if I could create a product that contains all of these elements in one," said Ryo Yoshida, 25. its managing director Tsubame Industries. .

"I wanted to create something that said, 'This is Japan.'

Yoshida plans to build and sell five of these machines to robot friends, but he hopes the robot could one day be used as disaster relief or in space.
