Iron Man Robot Suits To Be Commercialized In Korea
Korean auto giant Hyundai Motor Group has unveiled photos of robot exoskeletons through its blog post on Friday, after 6 years of research and development in the area.
Just like in the famous Hollywood blockbuster “Iron Man”, the wearable robotic device is used to give the controller extra strength and assistance.
Hyundai said that the new technology can be applied in many areas including national defense, production, and even physical rehabilitation.
The exoskeleton still under development can make it possible for the wearer to lift an object weighing over 60 kg and assist him or her in physical movements. “To help the people walk, going upstairs and down stairs and just for a better life quality.”
