Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Really Enjoyed Operating a Giant Robot

Mar 20, 2017

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos looked like a kid in a candy store while operating a giant robot at the MARS conference on Monday.

The Verge reports that the conference, which is sponsored by Amazon, focuses on "machine learning, home automation, robotics and space exploration." There, Bezos could be seen in the giant robot. But videos of the machine—which is not unlike what you might see in a science fiction film—have been circulating online since December 2016.

"Why do I feel so much like Sigourney Weaver," Bezos said while raising the arms of a 13-foot-tall robot. He was referring to a suit the actor wore in the 1986 movie Aliens.

Up until now some have speculated that the bot is not real — but Bezos' joyful romp in the suit at the very least proves it exists.
