Recent years have been favorable for the development of exoskeletons. Unfortunately, such devices are still far from perfect, but already today they can demonstrate amazing skills. For example, the Guardian XO exoskeleton released by Sarcos allows its user to freely manipulate objects weighing up to 90 kg and it feels like a 5-kilogramme weight for the user.
Unsurprisingly, the military authorities have demonstrated keen interest in the technology, because theoretically it can be widely applied in the armed forces. It can have many applications in combat and support operations, for example, with equipment transportation and maintenance.
The exoskeleton’s accumulator is designed for 8 hours of continuous operation, allowing you to move at speeds up to 5.5 km/h. BMW, Caterpillar and other companies involved in technology and construction have also set their eyes on the novelty.
The multilevel security system provides a reliable antiburglary protection. The device also reads biometric data enabling to accurately identify the owner.
