  • Jonathan Tippett has spent years building a working Maek Ah, high horsepower monster that he's gonna test drive for the very first time.

  • He's either going to succeed or we're gonna cut to a commercial.

  • He's almost throwing himself out of it once, but way fixed that repair.

  • So I'm worried about the destruction of our dream by destroying the machine.

  • When you unleash the machine like that and you hand the control over from the computers to the human, I mean, there's 200 horsepower in that thing, and if you let it get out of control, it could destroy itself pretty quick.

  • Okay, wait, stuck up.

  • This is sort of like unleashing the beast.

  • We've been waiting a long time, and, uh, hope it goes well, this new control system, when John turns the machine on for the first time, he's gonna have his finger on the trigger ready to shut it down right away.

  • Because if it starts to go, it could just rip itself apart.

  • If we destroy it, we're sunk.

  • Keep your finger on the trigger.

  • It's so reactive.

  • It is so punchy I could feel the momentum across.

  • Thesis amplifies Jonathan's moves as if it were an extension of his own body.

  • It's like it's amazing nude.

  • But will it pass the critical test?

  • Can it walk for the first time ever?

  • Press thesis ambles along at almost four miles an hour, about as fast as a very brisk human being.

  • It really felt like I was one with the machine.

  • I know now we could make this thing run.

  • And once that happens, the possibilities are endless.

  • I could see somebody being rescued by a giant exoskeleton moving rubble out of the way.

  • It amplifies what a human wants to do.
