Amauchi Industry and karakuri products, which are the ones behind the projects, is actually seeking to replicate the Tachikoma robots as 1/2 scale industrial robots. Smaller than the actual Tachikoma robots, but can be used for a variety of purposes. The one displayed during the event is a mock-up of the exterior shell, as the actual robot is still incomplete.

With the event now over, the replica shell is now on display at the Production I.G. Store in Tokyo, but only for a limited time until 8 May 2016. It can be found next to the 1/2 scale model of the Logicoma robot from Ghost in the Shell: Arise. The Logicoma model is a permanent fixture of the store.
