Wired Brings a 400-Pound Giant Robot to San Diego Comic Con 2013

Wired has brought a 9.5-foot-tall, 400-pound mech to San Diego Comic Con 2013. The giant robot was created in collaboration with the Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects — the studio that built armor for Pacific Rim and Iron Man — and will be patrolling the convention center all weekend.

[The Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects] 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.
