The Prosthesis Anti-Robot is a towering machine operated purely by human body movements. If that doesn’t impress you, how do you feel knowing the Anti-Robot weighs over 3,400 kilograms (7,500 pounds) and is 4.6 metres (15 feet) tall?

The pilot can move such a huge machine by their own efforts thanks to an interface that attaches to their arms and legs and translates the movements of their limbs into the robot’s four hydraulic legs. This, along with positional and force feedback, means the pilot’s limbs directly correlate to those of the machine and when the force on them increases, the limbs get harder to move. A suspension system also helps the pilot feel when the bot’s feet connect with the ground.

The Anti-Robot clearly highlights the possibilities of exoskeletons, with human strength and speed not only dramatically increased but also transferred into a machine many times their size. It’s not hard to foresee construction workers suited up and shifting huge crates with ease in the near future.
