See How Legacy Effects Built The New ROBOCOP Suits
Here's an interesting video that takes you behind-the-scenes of Legacy Effects (formerly known as Stan Winston Studios) as they help construct the suits for Jose Padilha's RoboCop reboot.
"Legacy Effects is often tasked with taking a virtual design and making it work in the real world. Never was this more the case than with ROBOCOP: How do you make a skin-tight suit that has to flex and move but also behave like a bulletproof suit of armor? Go behind the scenes with the Legacy team as they make the robotics of Robocop a reality." - Legacy Effects
