BC engineer hopes to make sport out of giant exoskeleton “mech suits”

Global News published this video item, entitled “BC engineer hopes to make sport out of giant exoskeleton “mech suits”” – below is their description.

Jonathan Tippett, an engineer in Squamish, British Columbia, has turned his dream into reality after creating the world’s largest tetrapod exoskeleton mech suit.

And his aspirations just keep getting bigger. It’s not difficult to see where Tippet drew the inspiration for his exoskeleton, with an endless amount of movies featuring mech suits and similar fantastical technology.

But oddly enough, it wasn’t Hollywood that got his wheels turning — it was a 2003 trip to the Burning Man festival in California.

Mike Drolet explains why, and how Tippett and his team hope their technical marvels could be the start of one very metal competition.
