Automakers use technology to improve their vehicles and provide more whiz-bang gadgetry for owners. Bored engineers use technology to lift those cars right off the ground -- well, one does, at least.
After creating an exoskeleton capable of helping him curl 275 pounds on national television, James Hobson -- the man behind YouTube channel The Hacksmith -- used the lower half of a new exoskeleton design to lift a 2,524-pound .
From what we can see, a tank full of pressurized air extends two pistons by Hobson's legs, and as he rises, so does the car. It's a damned impressive feat, and he's not even finished with the suit yet. Here's hoping the final rendition can pick the Mini up and throw it a few hundred feet, a la The Hulk.
