TARS

Even if you didn't particularly like Interstellar, you can't deny that the artificially intelligent astronaut helper TARS was one of the coolest robots we've seen on the big screen in recent memory. Obviously having a robot like that of our own isn't all the viable of a prospect right now, but it would be nice if Warner Bros. commissioned an action figure of TARS for us to put on our shelves. However, one man decided that he didn't just want a TARS of his own but he wanted to become TARS. So he created this functional costume that allows him to walk around like the boxy robot did in Interstellar, and the result is pretty astounding.

Here's Iain Heath's costume of TARS from Interstellar (via Uproxx) in action:

Though it seems TARS still has some trouble with escalators (via Gizmodo):

Heath is usually a LEGO builder over at The Brothers Brick (we've featured some of their creations before), but this time he applied his skills to make this incredible costume. On the YouTube page showing off the TARS costume, Heath says it took him about 100 hours of works spread out over three months in order to build the costume for last month's Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, and it landed him the "One to Watch" award. The costume weighs about 40 pounds, and yes, those screens are real, with iPads used for the displays. There's even an audio system to play sound effects and be about 90% honest with you. Cool?

Oddly it's not too discimilar from the movie, there it was a much heavier suit and the puppeteer moved around with the help of hydraulics.

He should've dressed in all black or chroma-green for a complete "effect."

"Even if you didn't particularly like Interstellar," Dumbest opening sentence ever

Because opinions on this movie aren't divided? I know a lot of people who didn't like it.

So you know a lot of idiots.

Sure. I know a lot of idiots that can't imagine anyone not liking Interstellar. That movie is babbies first sci-fi, with some great effects and big names, but it ultimately turns into a schmaltzy, paradoxal and heavy handed mess. If you think that movie is above critique you are out of your mind.

You're a moron...I wish a coat hanger would travel through time and rid us of your moronic existence. Go die a virgin.

Hahaha, whatever man. You are a special kind of edgy aren't you?

Dear, dear TARS. I love this movie and he was my favorite part of it. I want a TARS of my very own!
