In the future, when the inevitable and literal fast food wars break out, we’ll all be too fat and unhealthy to fight for our chain of choice – which is why these fast food chains should start developing their own war machines.
Well, Halloween is upon us yet again, and my favorite costume of the year has just dropped onto my desktop. What you’re looking at here is an awesome build of the power loader from Aliens, piloted not by Ripley, but by an actual baby.
With only a week to go, it’s getting to be too late to start building your own really complex costume for Halloween. But if you happen to have $9,000 kicking around, and happen to live in Phoenix, AZ, you might still be able to pull off the best costume of the year.
If you didn’t already pick up that giant fist for carrying around your beer, you might want to hold off and buy these instead. These giant, inflatable fists turn your mitts into massive mech-like robo-fists.
I’m going to start saying that I’m taking this with a huge grain of salt. This robot looks very realistic, yet has a somewhat cheesy and viral attempt feel to it at the same time. Watch the video for yourself and see what you think.
Believe it or not, 3D-printed chess sets are nothing new, but Joseph Larson’s version of it is most certainly novel: a mighty morphin’ chess set. The pieces can be snapped together to form a giant robot that will make Deep Blue shut down in fear.
One of my all-time favorite video games was MechWarrior. I played that game for hours on end and wished on more than one occasion I had a real robot with rail guns and missiles. That real mech hasn’t happened yet, but I bet a lot of us would like to build one of these awesome small scale Mech Warfare robots that actually have firing weapons integrated.
Japan’s Giant Gundam sculpture was one of my favorite man-made since I started writing this here site. So when I stumbled onto these images and video footage of the recently-dismantled Gundam statue, I wept. Okay, so I had just been cutting onions, but it still made me sad.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Japan, you’ve had plenty of opportunity to check out the giant Gundam statue that’s been around for the last year or so. But for those of us here in the States and other places around the world, we’ve got no giant Gundam love.
If you don’t have an iPhone or an Android phone yet, why not get a Gundam Robot Phone instead?
This phone will be released by Japan’s third biggest mobile phone carrier, SoftBank Mobile, who has 25 million subscribers.
Ever wonder what to do with those stupid grids of plastic left over when you assemble a model? How about build a Gundam?
That’s exactly what these guys did with their leftover bits and pieces. It took over 250 man-hours to build the RG (Recycle Grade) RX-78-2 Gundam, which measures in at nearly 10-feet tall.
Holy crikey! This is one bad-ass casemod job.
Created by modder pinchillo, this mech-style computer casemod is inspired by the Dreadnoughts from Warhammer 40,000. But even if you’ve never played the game, you have to appreciate the sheer spectacle of pinchillo’s amazing case-building skills.
Tyler Clites, who’s also known as Legohaulic, put together this amazing LEGO build. He calls it Element Commune. When you first see it, it looks like a great design, but then when you see the thing walking around, it’s takes it to a whole ‘nother level.
Looking to throw down with some giant stompy robots in a realistic, immersive way? Upset that virtual reality tech hasn’t swept in to take care of this for you? While you may not be able to climb into your personalized mech and brawl your heart out, thanks to a forthcoming WiiWare title, you will at least be able to do a little robot fighting.
