“Using PVC pipe and black sculpted foam, Moser is on his way to having a screen accurate K-2SO that he can walk around with at conventions. The head is 3D printed based on a replica that he found online, and inside of it is a wireless camera that feeds a video signal to an iPad on the back of the droid that allows Moser to see where he’s going.
