    Danger! Danger! AVG anti-virus shutdown my browser when I went to look at the link page. It made some noise about a known vulnerability. Yes, I use Firefox, but this stupid laptop uses V*st* instead of a decent *nix distro. You have been warned!

    There are tons of pictures on Flickr, just search on “la machine liverpool”.

    Having been there, I have yet to see a photo that gives a true impression of the scale of the thing.

    Some good vieos here ..

    Am I the only one who’s horribly disappointed that it doesn’t walk? It looks so cool, but it’s really just a big puppet that gets carried along on a lift truck. The technology exist, if you’re going to go to the trouble and expense, make it walk. Big let down. :-(
