So Wired brought a 400 pound, 9.5-foot-tall robot mech to Comic-Con. Born out of a collaboration between Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects (the same people behind the armor in Pacific Rim and Iron Man) it's... impressive, to say the least – something this reaction from Mythbuster's Adam Savage makes abundantly clear.

They 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.
