This is my full-sized walking replica of the robot TARS from the movie Interstellar. It took 3 months to build, and was unveiled at Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle) in March 2015, where it interacted with the public and even won me the "One To Watch" award in the costume contest!

The replica uses two iPads as computer readouts, and features a camera/monitor system to allow me to see in front of it. It also has an audio system, allowing me to talk to people or play sound effects. Everyone seemed enthralled by the thing, and we got a lot of love from the convention-goers. It was a great experience and I hope to lug TARS to other conventions over the course of 2015.

Designed, Built and Performed by Iain Heath.
Camera, Spotting and Direction by Guy Himber.
