Seattle-based designer Ian Heath, previously featured here, has built an awesome full-sized walking replica of the TARS robot from the 2014 science fiction movie Interstellar.

To make the cosplay TARS robot, Heath built a wooden frame and covered it with thin sheets of metal, before installing two iPads for the computer readouts and a camera/monitor system to help him maneuver and interact with the cosplay crowd.

Heath recently unveiled his cosplay TARS robot, which took him three months to build, at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, where he won the “One to Watch” award in the costume contest.

Watch the video below to see Heath’s cosplay TARS robot in action.
