Watch the world's tallest robot Tsutenkaku in action (weird video)

We’ve covered Tsutenkaku, a Japanese robot that looks like a tower to promote tourism in the city of Osaka, just last week. Standing 170cm tall, his makers claim Tsutenkaku [JP] is the tallest robot in the world. And now he finally showed himself in the public, during a street festival that took place over the weekend in Osaka’s shopping district of Nipponbashi.

Verdict: Tsutenkaku is a very weird robot. I just wonder how the handful of companies from Osaka that made it think about Hajime, another tall robot from Japan that stands even 210cm tall.

Just look at the way he “talks” and moves in the (Japanese) video below:
