Carlos of Neogentronyx is building hydraulic driven mech exoskeletons. He’s currently seeking funding so he can grow his company into actual Mecha construction/research & development group -

This is the new Neo-Mech chassis I developed after having created and tested my previous Mech (Big-Red) as many called it.
I began the project back in early January of 2007.

The new chassis is 16ft tall thus far as I have not yet built the head.

I am going to be transferring all current hydraulics from Big-Red Due to a dry well of funding (lack of) to the new chassis.

Awesome work and an interesting aspiration, he’s already received some donations and I’ve got a feeling we’ll see more from him in the future.
