TACHIKOMA, a smart toy replica of the AI robotic weapons platform that appears in the animation "Ghost in the Shell", is fully movable and can move around by it’s own robotic feet and wheels. It is the first Ghost in the Shell product,(*) with the perspective of the world of "Ghost in the Shell S.A.C." that realizes electric movability of each joint, pod, manipulator, and wheel. It features a speech recognition function that allows users to communicate with TACHIKOMA in natural language, reproduces the "synchronization" ability between all other TACHIKOMA(s) and has a walking/running function controlled via smartphone.
Modelling of 1/8 TACHIKOMA was based on 3D data used in the animation production. Following the original shaping as much as possible and finished to a quality that seems like it has just jumped out of the world of ”Ghost in the Shell”.
Editorial supervision of the TACHIKOMA unit and specifications overseen by Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. TV series director - Kenji Kamiyama. Also, the recorded vocal lines were supervised by Yoshiki Sakurai, the screenwriter and Kazuhiro Wakabayashi, the sound director of the TV series. Maximum "TACHIKOMA-likeness" was achieved with the assistance of the original "Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. team.
