Pacific Rim Featurette Teaches You About Some Of The Film's Coolest Tech
From Cinema Blend
Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim seems to be filmed with all kinds of cool little universe-building details that scif-fi geeks will go crazy for, but one of the coolest ideas the film employs is the way in which the giant robots, called Jaegers, are piloted by humans. Because it takes too much brain power for one person to control a machine as large as the Jaegers are, a science is developed that allows two pilots to telepathically link, enter a shared mind space called The Drift, and control the giant metal bot. And that cool little detail is the subject of the latest behind-the-scenes featurette, released by Warner Bros.
