The platform called Prosthesis – “Prosthesis”, presented at CES 2017, claims the title of the most extraordinary robotic vehicle. Formally, this huge technological miracle-yudo is a new kind of exoskeleton, which is controlled by the person inside it.

Prosthesis is not a self-propelled machine, for movement the pilot must actively use his own hands and feet connected to the levers. Most of all it resembles a half-jumping gorilla, which, when walking, rests on massive “hands”. The speed of the movement is limited to only 36 km / h, and the energy reserve in the battery is enough for one hour of walking. But you can move on any rough terrain, inaccessible to the wheeled transport. In theory.


To go live live on Prosthesis to CES visitors were not allowed, the exhibition exhibit is deprived of the most complex – biomechanical controls. In the company Furrion do not want to give a hint to competitors and they promise to show Prosthesis in action when they prepare the next version of the exoskeleton ready for sale. This manufacturer is a “dark horse” and for promises can stand as a real project, and a dummy.


The race for the creation of an effective robotic chassis for movement on a complex terrain in full swing. Recently, the startup MegaBots collected for this purpose immediately 2 million dollars. And even if the four-legged “Proteus” never strolls through the real mountains, in the near future we will for sure see its worthy alternative.
