This is pretty damn cool. A Beijing man has created a working, two-metre-tall robot out of scrap parts.
The robot, described by creator Tao Xiangli as “ugly, [but] kind of awesome”, weighs in at 225 kg and was built out of over 110 separate parts and 3,000 pieces of cable. Tao says the robot can perform “simple movements” and “mimic human actions by using infrared rays”.
