Giant robot design competition

From the MAKE Forums:

Have a vision for a gigantic robot, but no resources to see your dream enacted? Want a group of hackers to bring it to life, and march it to the UK Maker Faire? Then you might want to check out this competition by the hackerspace NorHACKton. They are looking to build such a beast, and are looking for some design inspiration on what to make:

NorHACKton is attempting to make a large robot sculpture to generate publicity and raise awareness of the hackerspace within the local community. We aim to assemble and display the sculpture on the streets of Northampton on a busy Saturday and inform any interested members of the public who we are and what we’re about. Then we will attempt to move the robot up to the Newcastle centre for life to display it for the weekend at the UK Maker Faire.
