exoskeleton

The U.S. military is always looking for ways to give soldiers an edge. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is spending $2.9 million to get researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering to develop a flexible robotic exoskeleton for soldiers. The goal is to make soldiers stronger. The Soft Exosuit will be light and flexible. It fits around the wearer’s waist and legs, with its motors built into a strap that stays around the wearer’s waist.
