This guy is awesome. In fact, this guy makes me wish that awesome was a verb, so that I could say that "he awesomed around like there was no tomorrow."
Pop Sci reports that Carlos Owens of Wasilla, Alaska built his own 18 foot tall robotic exoskeleton in his backyard because...you know...he can. He acknowledges that it may have legitimate applications for the military or construction, but this ignores it's primary function: terrifying the villagers! Owens needs to work on his evil laugh. Muahahaha!
(Side note: the above clip is from Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long blog which is both SWEET and now available in its entirety on Hulu.)
Seriously, I would build my own death robot, but I doubt the New York authorities would be as understanding.
It's not a robot, it's a mecha, but still. So much awesomess <3
