Title: Exoskeletons
Post by: Rattler on 20 July 2010, 08:27:43
As Lockheed Martins Hydraulic Load Carrier HULC exoskeleton goes into field tests it looks that we will see it in actioin sooner or later.

Exoskeletons are interesting stuff, HULC e.g. has no arms and does not actually move, but senses your movements and augments them, while being incredibly flexible. Another approach is the Raytheon Sarcos exoskeleton, which yes has arms and auments all forces escerted.

Here the vids of both:
