Homemade Exoskeleton - Anime brought to life

Homemade working mech suit

By JC

Man, I want one of these… heh. A fellow in Anchorage has designed and built his own Mech suit, powered by an engine and hydraulics.

In the back of Carlos Owens’ southern Alaska yard, an 18-foot-tall steel robot is taking shape in the dim light of the winter afternoons.

The 26-year-old Owens is an Anchorage-area steelworker by day. In his own time, he’s hoping to become the creator of a true “mecha“–not a robot, exactly, but a gigantic exoskeleton that can transform its wearer’s motions into eight-foot strides and the devastating sweep of a steel fist.

So how long til I can get it on ebay and get to work with the smashing and crushing things? :-)
