You remember TARS, right? It's the robot from the 2014 film Interstellar that helps out Matthew McConaughey and his space crew throughout the film.

Well, designer Ian Heath has created the perfect replica, based on the charismatic robot.

First, he built a wooden frame completely from scratch:

He then covered the whole frame with thin sheet metal, spray-painting "TARS" on one of the sheets:

Since he controlled TARS from the back, he put in a camera to help him see the front:

And put in two iPads to stand in for TARS' "computer readouts":

And two bars to ease maneuvering:

According to the video description: "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."

And then, he showed it off to the world at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle:

Where he won the "One To Watch" award in the costume contest.

And people loved it:

One thing is for sure: IT'S AWESOME!

From the video description: "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."
