This Giant Walking Robot Might Be The Coolest Thing At Comic-Con
Comic-Con used to be about the comics. Then it became about the movies. Now it's just a glorified parade of 400-lb. walking robots. Buncha sell outs these days. Wired magazine asked the Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects, the braintrusts behind Pacific Rim and Iron Man, to build them a damn robot. A huge one. And those tasked with the effort did a pretty damn good job, creating this ED-209 (Robocop) lookalike that was able to mirror the smallest of movements performed by whoever was manning the controls.
