Using a glove or suit to control the actions of a robot isn't something new. Heck, the Jaegers in Pacific Rim are based on something in real life, but this guy took it one step further. His control suit is made out of nothing but LEGOs, an Android App and an Arduino.

Can you blame us though? Perfectly proportioned, and eager to abide by your every command. Who would've thought replacing Codsworth's typical thrusters with Assaultron's legs could've struck such an impact on dat aesthetic appeal?
