RoboGlove: Force Multiplying Wearable by GM & NASA

RoboGlove

Robotic gloves are nothing new. We have seen them used in space and other missions in the past. The RoboGlove happens to be a force-multiplying battery-powered wearable developed by NASA and GM. It uses sensors, actuators and tendons that are comparable to nerves and muscles in a human hand.

These gloves reduce the amount of force a worker needs to exert to operate tools. They make performing repetitive tasks easier. This technology is expected to have applications in health care, manufacturing and other industrial applications.
