Vancouver’s Prosthesis wins Popular Mechanics best of CES 2017

Art meets technology. From the makers of the Mondo Spider, a collaborative contemporary art project featuring a 1,500lb 8-legged electro-mechanical walking vehicle comes Prosthesis, a 14 feet tall and 7,000 pound racing robot.   Designed and built by Jonathan Tippet, it can run 21 mph over nearly any terrain. Check out their Instagram page racing_mech.  Furion, a global technology conglomerate, recently became involved and has created a new division of their company,Furion Robotics, around Tippet’s vision.   Proof art and technology are not polar opposites.
