This Lego genius built an exoskeleton to remotely control his creations

Danny Benedettelli is a Lego genius – he wrote the book on how to create cool things with Lego Mindstorms (literally) – and has also created an exoskeleton to remotely control the robots he builds.

The suit is what he’s sporting in the video above and it is just so cool. He calls the sensor-packed suit ‘Waldo’ and it allows him to make the robot move when he does via a Bluetooth connection.

Now that’s a good DIY project for the weekend…
