BBC News are currently running an interesting story featuring the Giant Gundam model in Tokyo. It focuses on Japan's great love for all things giant and robotic.
They get Patrick Galbraith, ethnographer at the University of Tokyo (I want his job), and author of The Otaku Encyclopedia to explain what Gundam is.
The article then goes to explain the rise of otaku culture and concludes with how robots will become more common place.
