Tokyo has unveiled a monstrous robot to help publicize its bid to bring the 2016 Summer Olympics back to Japan. Named “Gundam,” this 59-foot tall robot billows smoke out of its chest. He stands near what would be the beach volleyball venue if Tokyo were to receive the 2016 Games.
More than 1 million people have visited Gundam since he was unveiled. Tokyo last hosted the Olympics in 1964. London will host the 2012 Games.
