Robotic suit gives you power to lift 220 pounds like superhero
Washington: A latest robotic suit reportedly allows wearers to lift heavy objects like a superhero.
The robotic `body extender` by an Italian engineering company, Percro, could help disaster workers clear rubble easily or have usage in war zones.
According to Cnet, the extender allows wearer to lift up to 220 pounds of weight, 110 pounds with each hand, and has 22 different points of movement.
The Percro engineers said that it`s the most sophisticated wearable robot developed to date.
Fabio Selsedo from Percro said that it was a device that`s able to track the complex movements of the human body, and also to amplify the force of the user.
There have been robotic suits in the past like Japanese company Cyberdyne`s Hybrid Assisted Limb (HAL) power suit, NASA`s X1 Robotic Exoskeleton, 3D Systems and Ekso Bionics` 3D-print a bionic suit and James Dyson design award-winning Titan Arm, the report added.
