Have you ever watched a giant mecha suit go off-roading?

Mecha Tow

Have you ever seen a giant mech suit pull a pickup truck in the desert? Neither did we.

Back in 2019, the folks behind the startup Furrion Exo-Bionics took their fully-functioning, 9,000 pound mechanized suit, called Prosthesis, for a spin in the Mojave Desert in California.

As seen in recently released footage, the massive suit was capable of pulling a pickup truck, along with a massive trailer. It’s an awesome show of strength and agility — and perhaps a glimmer of what’s to come.

The company is hoping to build out a “global racing league that would pit multiple world-class athletes in head-to-head competitions, through complex technical obstacle courses, wearing giant powered mech suits,” as per a Kickstarter that launched last summer.
