Working Lego Exosuit

Danny Benedettelli built a wearable exosuit that controls a Lego robot. It may not quite by the neural network that the characters in Pacific Rim utilize but the result is the same. Benedetelli began his work on what he calls the Cyclops Project 4 years ago. The little jaegar is controlled through a bluetooth relay from the wearable harness, an Android app of Benedetelli’s own design, and Lego Mindstorms NXT hardware. I wonder how big a robot could be built using the same technology? Benedetelli has downloadable instructions on his site to build a Wall-E robot, Chappie robot head and more, using the Mindstorms set.
