So Beakerhead just sent me this and I thought I would share:


The maker of Mondo Spider (that massive mechanical spider you saw at Beakerhead) is a delightful madman (and accomplished artist and engineer). Now, Jonathan Tippett is building the world’s first human controlled racing robot — a 16-foot high, somewhat terrifying, mechanical creature.

We offered to share his project with you, as he is looking for supporters.…

If all goes according to Tippet's mad plan, this giant robot will make its debut on the trembling streets of Calgary in 2015.



Looks interesting to me, but I don't know anything about Robots except what TV tells me
