    Getting the rhythm
    February 1, 2012

    This video shows the performance and control possible with a bit of practice. I've probably put in about 60min of actual time on the controls at this point. My inputs to the prototype exo-frame are minimal and essentially tune the reflexes of the leg. If I were to let go of the controls, it would almost instantly come to rest. Suspension drop tests are soon to come, demonstrating the ability of the machine to land comfortably from a drops of half a meter or more and come to rest if the pilot wants.


    Prosthesis Alpha Leg Trailer

    Published on Jul 2, 2013

    The first step to making a giant walking machine, is to make a prototype leg. The Alpha Leg. This is the story of that prototype and where it will lead us.

    Prosthesis: The Anti-Robot

    Published on Nov 3, 2013

    Introducing Prosthesis: the world's first human controlled racing robot. Formula One, meet the future. Terminator, meet your match.

    We have spent years designing and engineering this robot, and built a successful prototype of the alpha-leg. We are now ready to take Prosthesis to the next level and to build the final machine. T

    This is what the leg does to the interface via the feedback cylinders. The cylinders we are moving go in the joints of the leg and relay position directly back to the pilot.

    First human piloted jumps with the Alpha Leg

    Published on Nov 21, 2014

    Prosthesis will work!

    This test proves that piloting something with exo-skeletal interface as it hurls you around is possible, if slightly terrifying. This was the very first time a human has ridden the Leg and after 20min I was really starting to get the hang of it.

    The next step is to let out the safety straps and try to nail jumping back and forth!

    SolidWorks simulation of Alpha Leg backward drop

    Published on Jan 19, 2015

    We are closing in on an accurate kinetic model of the Alpha Leg. This will be compared to accelerometer readings from the Alpha Leg to validate the model...opening the door to model the full scale machine in impact and operation.


    Full Simulated Jump Through

    Published on Jan 26, 2015

    This is a kinematically accurate simulation of a 117kg (spherical) pilot doing a jump through. The leg suspension is soft and the pilot suspension is jacked up, but the model is ready to validate with data from the real leg!

    First human test of new pilot suspension

    Published on Jun 14, 2015

    Very early stages of pilot training begins! The new pilot suspension makes it possible to endure the pounding of the learning process for a bit longer.
