Awesome Home-Built Elysium Exoskeleton Lifts 170 Pounds Like Nothing

YouTuber The Hacksmith has been working on his Elysium-inspired exoskeleton for a long time. Now it's finally paid off: The pneumatic-powered cyborg arms let him curl more than 170 pounds like it's an empty pillow sack, complete with exactly the sort of robotic sounds you'd expect.

Clearly, The Hacksmith's work isn't done yet—he's still relying on his puny human legs, when a pair of cybernetic exo-pants would be way more badass. And, yeah, the whole rig sort of looks like it was made out of overgrown Erector parts. Still, I don't see you curling 170 pounds so effortlessly.

Just, please, don't try this at home. At least, not until someone comes up with a cyborg robo-suit to prevent you from throwing out your back. [The Hacksmith]
