#科技头条#【行走的外骨骼 真实媲美钢铁侠】初创公司SuitX的外骨骼已经从实验模型走向现实。福特汽车公司已经开始为流水线上的工人配备SuitX工业外骨骼,旨在增强力量,并防止工人在执行重复性任务时受伤。SuitX由三个不同的组件组成:帮助人们举重物的BackX;更容易地保持蹲伏姿势的LegX;减轻头颈工作压力的ShoulderX。 这一套设备重约50磅(22.5千克),价值13000美元。

The SuitX exoskeleton gave me crazy strength

It’s almost as good as an Iron Man suit.

I feel superhuman.

I just lifted a 50 pound box like it weighed almost nothing -- no gym time required. I'm wearing an exoskeleton by SuitX that's supporting my back, using a clever system of springs and clutches to give me a boost.

Industrial exoskeletons, or exosuits, are designed to enhance your strength and help prevent injuries when performing repetitive tasks. They're becoming increasingly important in car factories, with workers at Fiat Chrysler trying the SuitX. Ford is using the EksoVest from Ekso Bionics to help employees lift and hold car components overhead.

The SuitX is made up of three different components named after the parts of your body they're protecting: the BackX; the LegX to make it easier to hold a crouched position; and the ShoulderX to reduce strain when working above your head.

With the LegX, you can squat for hours without feeling any strain in your legs or knees. It's like having your own personal chair that goes with you everywhere. Read more about how SuitX works here.

What else did I do with the exoskeleton? Watch the video on this page to see for yourself (it's also available on YouTube).

This is the first episode of Beta Test, a new show that puts you in the front seat with me as I test our crazy tech products and experiences. Check back each month for a new show!
