How and why this lifesized Titanfall mech was built

first_imgWord that Germany is host to a 20-foot tall Titanfall mech for the next couple of weeks left all of us here at Geek.com asking who built it and how. It turns out this creation is one of two made by Daniel’s Wood Land, and the company was nice enough to share with us how this hulking bot came to be.Reaspawn and EA Games reached out to Daniel’s Wood Land a few months back with some artwork from Titanfall to see if they were up to the job. The larger of the two creations is the biggest creation the company has done to date. Originally named Gunslinger before it was delivered for use in countless gaming events, the Atlas mech that is now affectionately called Betty took the team four weeks to carve, paint, and assemble.According to Theming Designer Cj Berg, Gunslinger is made almost entirely out of EPS foam, which was cut using a large format 4-axis router and a large format CNC hotwire from 3D models made from Respawn’s artwork. The steel base for the mech was fabricated in house and then covered in more of the EPS foam, which was then coated and painted while the rest of the build happened. It wasn’t until the very end of the build that they were able to assemble the mech and see how it all looked as a single unit.Gunslinger is more than just foam and steel, there’s some animatronics going on in there as well. The torso has a few basic LEDs across the sides, but the head on the atlas is both posable and configurable, with LEDs that match the lights on the mechs in game. These are the only parts of the Gunslinger build that can be adjusted, but the addition of LEDs add just enough life to the build to make it even more menacing from a distance or in low light.Take a look at our gallery for the whole picture, and see as this project grows from plain white foam to gigantic robot.And, in case you were wondering, no actually asked “Why?” This was clearly something that needed to be done by someone.

Dysert who was on the practice squad most of this

first_imgDysert, who was on the practice squad most of this year, beat competitor Aaron Murray for the effective third-string quarterback job to begin the regular season before he spent one week on the Cardinals’ active roster. He was promoted to the active roster heading into Arizona’s Week 5 game against the San Francisco 49ers because Palmer missed the game due to the league’s concussion protocol.Palmer is expected to be cleared this long week, well in time to prepare him for the Cardinals’ Monday game against the New York Jets.Dysert, who was the backup behind Drew Stanton this past week, has still not thrown an NFL pass. He has been a member of six NFL teams since being picked out of Miami (Ohio) by the Denver Broncos in the seventh round of the 2013 draft.Arizona could still resign Dysert to the practice squad.Wallace, who is 6-foot-6 and 311 pounds, entered the league in 2013 as a rookie free agent out of Temple. He played with the Cleveland Browns his first season.He played on the practice squads of the Carolina Panthers in 2014, and then with the Buccaneers and Broncos practice squads last year.Wallace was released by Chicago on Aug. 28.
