Morning Open Thread

A giant mechanical robot storms Comic Con 2013...

San Diego Comic Con 2013: It took the mighty minds and resources of WIRED, YouTube, Stan Winston Studios, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment to create an insanely detailed, one-of-a-kind, 9 foot 9 inch Mechanical robot with four arms to usher in the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. And who better to announce it than Adam Savage, of Tested and Mythbusters. It is ready to blow your mind. And coming soon to YouTube's Geek Week ... a huge mini-series showing how this colossus was built.

Your morning open thread begins below.
