A man by the name of Jonathan Tippett built Prosthesis, which is the worlds first and largest, purpose-built, off-road exoskeleton racing mech, which was designed and made to pioneer an entirely new sport of mech racing.

It even has a Guinness World Record certification as the worlds largest four-legged exoskeleton.

Now to be clear this is not a robot, its not controlled by a computer or some kind of remote control or joystick system, it is completely controlled by a single person sitting inside the cockpit, controlling it with his own arms and legs.

When the pilot moves his arms and his legs, each of his movements will be transmitted then amplified by the four giant legs, so good physical health and stamina, will be absolutely essential to control the robot.

Thanks for watching.
