“An entirely new human experience - mech racing”

The Prosthesis exoskeleton

The Prosthesis exoskeleton is the brain-child of Jonathan Tippett of Furrion Exo-Bionics with the goal to create a racing mech suit.

This new sport will pit pilot against pilot in massive, agile, high-powered, all electric, off-road running machines. These "racing mechs" will have no autonomy or gyro-stabilization. They will rely entirely on the skill and training of the pilots inside them to move. This vision is the culmination of more than a decade of work by creator Jonathan Tippett and his huge team of volunteers at the eatART Foundation.
