I am announcing the start of building a new Colossus, the plan is to get it ready in time for New York Comic Con in October. Due to all the other things that I will need to prepare for the Comic Con, I cannot devote too much design time to this Colossus. I will only [...]
OMG! One of the Codename Colossus videos was featured on Jamie & Adam Tested! Having enjoyed watching Myth Busters and the Tested videos with Will and Norman, it feels great to know that they think my product is cool. You can read about it here.
It is such a privilege to have the well regarded Engineering Hack magazine Hackaday feature Codename Colossus. It is even more heartening that a website that I visit periodically for tips and tricks thinks well of my project. Thanks to Theodora Fabio and the Hackaday team for this vote of confidence.

It is official. Codename Colossus will be at the New York Comic Con from 8th to 11th October 2015. I really humbled by the fact that getting an exhibition booth at a popular special interest (a.k.a. geek) convention in the US is not easy at all for a newcomer like myself. I have applied for a [...]

I would like to present this first reveal and video test of the first production prototype for Codename Colossus. His Majesty's Colossus "Boudicca". The T1 training Colossus. So far I've uploaded drawings and pictures of the partial builds, and quite frankly, I could have faked a photo and video shoot earlier. I had all the component [...]
This video gives a glimpse of one major aspect of creating Codename Colossus, the preparation and painting of the parts. HMC Boudicca is made out of 435 3D printed and laser cut pieces. These are 229 different designs, every single one of which I had to design, digitally model and draw, and commission for 3D [...]
A year ago, in June 2014, I privately posted a video of the prototype of the HMC Boudicca to a select few people to get a gauge of their reactions to Codename Colossus as a project. I am releasing the video publicly now, because I have made a new official public reveal video. Also included [...]
