Jim Martin’s a cool guy. According to an article in Computer Gaming World, the NASA scientist loves the MechWarrior series. He channeled those feelings into creating a huge Mad Cat (a.k.a. Timber Wolf) mech treehouse for his children. It even has a control panel. It apparently took only a couple of weeks to build and just a few hundred dollars worth of supplies including cement, metal, and wood. I’m surprised it came together that quickly and cheaply. You rock, sir.
