1997, Japanese machine shop owner Hitoshi Takahashi started building this 17-ton robot. Two diesel engines allow the machine to walk at a brisk 2.5 MPH, which is just fast enough to walk straight into my mecha-loving heart.

Using a glove or suit to control the actions of a robot isn't something new. Heck, the Jaegers in Pacific Rim are based on something in real life, but this guy took it one step further. His control suit is made out of nothing but LEGOs, an Android App and an Arduino.

Can you blame us though? Perfectly proportioned, and eager to abide by your every command. Who would've thought replacing Codsworth's typical thrusters with Assaultron's legs could've struck such an impact on dat aesthetic appeal?

Cozmo hits stores in October for $179, but Anki (robotics company responsible for creating this beaut) is taking pre-orders now on its website. Anki is also planning to release the SDK, which will allow owners to tinker with Cozmo’s A.I., if they'd like to. Check Cozmo out in action below:

That's right, the Goon is one step closer to gracing the silver screen. I'm so f#@&ing excited.
