Looking for the new Hombre de Hierro. This is the ‘offer’ made by a Canadian artist and engineer who has designed a huge exoskeleton of four tons and who wants to turn it into a racing car. All summer long he is training volunteers on his ranch to teach them how to run it.

The first thing they need to know is if they want to apply to pilot Prosthetics is that at first it’s like being locked up: until the exoskeleton suit is turned on you can’t move. As soon as it is activated, everything comes to life. “And you discover that with the slightest movement of your hand or foot there is a 4,000 kilos moving under your control,” explains Jonathan Tippet, the thinker behind.

Its about tetrapod exoskeleton largest in the world: four meters high, five long and another five and a half wide. It is inspired by the Transformers, one of its creator’s favorite movies, and also by Iron Man. The first pilots are already being trained to turn this mechanized suit into a competition vehicle. “I envision or envision a world where mech suits are as common as televisions,” says Tippet.

According to him, this mega gadget can have multiple uses: for example, mining, agricultural tasks or the rescue of people in natural disasters. The cost of this machine that amplifies human strength 50 times, according to its creator, is between 50,000 and 150,000 dollars.
