Giant mech takes first steps toward its own racing league

Share it

Last year at CES, Furrion unveiled the Prosthesis, a giant mech that it wants to make the star of a new kind of racing series. Furrion posted a new video of its Prosthesis mech to YouTube, and it shows the giant mechanical creation actually moving across the desert.

Furrion didn’t make its name in robotics – it produces high-end RV finishes, home appliances and professional electronics – so having a mech that actually moves on its own is pretty damned impressive.

It absolutely must move if Furrion is to follow through with its plans. Eventually, Furrion wants an entire racing league filled with these things. Yes, you read that correctly – this company is interested in creating a mech racing league.

There’s no word yet on when Furrion hopes to achieve its dreams, but at CES, where dreams often disappear into vaporware, it’s nice to see somebody making some proper progress.

    Compared to modern robotics this thing looked clumsy. By definition, I don’t think this is truly a robot. More like a hydraulic, legged, vehicle.
