Japanese Man Spends 11 Years Building Giant Beetle Robot

Back in 1997, Japanese machine shop owner Hitoshi Takahashi, then 50 years old, decided to build a giant beetle robot. For the next 11 years, his spare time was spent slowly assembling his 17-ton creation, the Kabutom RX-03. The massive robot is 36 feet long, has two diesel engines, and 6 legs that allow it to lumber along at 2.5 MPH.
