Man builds giant robot in backyard

Holy heaps of heavy metal!  I want one! :)  Talk about livening up the commute!!!  Move over or I will squish you!!


Alright, this guy is officially our new hero.  He’s building an 18-foot tall robot (or “mecha”) in the backyard of his home in Anchorage, Alaska.   The anime-inspired behemoth is actually a giant exoskeleton that you jump into and ride, letting you take eight-foot strides or, presumably, fight invading aliens.  He hopes to have it finished by next summer and will demonstrate it by demolishing a few cars at the local racetrack.  Somebody, please send us video.

[Thanks, Dana]
