The exoskeleton is 3.96 meters high, created by a resident of Vancouver, Jonathan Tippett, was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest in the world. This is stated in a message published on the official website of the directory.
The length of the device called Prosthesis is 5.1 m, its width is 5.5 m. The construction weighs a little more than 1.5 tons. For its production, chrome-plated steel pipes were used, which are also used in the aerospace industry.
It took the inventor about 13 years to create the exoskeleton, of which it took almost a year to assemble. "The construction process was very intensive. We installed the car in less than a year. And now we have been testing it for three years," Tippett said.
The machine is human-operated and powered by two electric motors powered by a custom-made, high-capacity lithium-ion battery. Remote control of the skeleton is not provided. The dimensions of the device allow it to move freely off-road and move loads weighing up to 5 tons.
Tippett calls his invention only the first prototype and is going to create a lighter and more maneuverable version of the smaller size.
The Guinness Book of Records is a reference book published annually since 1955 containing information on achievements - often the most exotic, as well as on unique natural phenomena.
