WIRED magazine teamed up with the Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects to bring this 9.5-foot, 400-pound robot costume to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. And this is a video of Mythbusters’ Adam Savage meeting the beast. When I meet it? A way more exciting video.
They came up with an aluminum and urethane behemoth, and invented an innovative control mechanism to let the robot arms replicate even the smallest movements of the pilot’s. Except, you know, with a 12-foot wingspan.
The robot also has a bunch of guns and blinking lights and robot sounds. And you know what else? It does have a friend already! Check the video below!
