Big Bad Beetle Mecha!

I think Gundams is well on its way to become a reality in Japan. They currently have the popular humanoid robot, Asimo, and it is constantly being improved and now this, a real mecha beetle developed by a Japanese engineer over the course of 11 years. Its design is based on a rhinocerous beetle and dubbed the Kabutom RX-03, an obvious tribute to the Gundam mobile suit RX-78. It has no practical use right now since it is still a prototype but its development can serve as small steps in ultimately building mobile suits in the future. I will be more than glad to see it have a fusion reactor and huge laser cannons on its back. LOL!
