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. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/prost…
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
