    How dafug are they calling this a 'racing' mech when all it can do is wobble. By that logic, I'm not typing this on a standard keyboard, I'm actually keying this on my 'flying' keyboard. Cool concept though.

    Looks too primitive when compared to what Boston Dynamics is doing.

    Don't give stupid shit like this attention. Such a complete waste of time and money, though the potential for disappointment is nearly endless.

    Some engineer at Furrion has played waaaay to much Warhammer 40k.
    All I see is a first stage prototype dreadnough – with all the "a human encased/controlling a big hulking mass steel frame" stuff….

    They're the ONLY company with a racing mech? All the others are faster than Prosthesis – even the 28' Mononofu can walk faster! The prototype Hajime 43 is faster! Let's see you walk first.

    I like the idea of racing mechs. But these guys need to get the engineering down before building full scale. Looks like a lot of money spent on an attention getter at this point.

    It looks like a copy of a Straandbeest but powered by a human instead of wind.
