This Exoskeletion Doesn't Just Look Cool, It Moves Smoothly In Response To Your Movement

This company has built an exoskeleton that has a look out of this world. But moreover, it's easy to put on and moves smoothly in response to your movement.

In how many ways can technology empower humans? Through computers that process information way faster, through robots that replace human labors, or in this case, upgraded arms and legs for you to stand taller, reach farther. In fact, exoskeletons, as these things are called, have been around for years with tech companies creating products of their own for implementation in the medical area, industries, and military.

However, in such an emerging field, Japanese firm Skeletonics Inc. sets itself from other players by building exoskeletons for entertainment purposes. Additionally, the company improves that operator’s motions using only mechanical means along with a masterful construction.

The most recent model Skeletonics™ Arrive, which came out last year, is almost 3 meters tall and 40 kilograms heavy. Thanks to its proprietary shoulder design, its users have a wide range of smooth motion and arm motion. Another improvement of this latest model of the previous one is that users can now suit up through simple attachments, starting operation in just a minute. And last but not least, the detachable parts mean users can take the exoskeleton apart then put the whole thing in a box.

While this product doesn’t have applications in industries or medical areas, it can be used at conventions or amusement parks. Or you can just play around wearing it to have a fun time.

You may wonder how this exoskeleton feels in real life; and as per an actual person that tried this on, the real-life experience is beyond comparison. Its arms were moving smoothly corresponding to the movements of the wearer and as bulky as it looks, the exoskeleton turned out more lightweight.

There are five buttons on the hands for controlling the fingers

The arms moved in almost every direction the wearer wanted it to and they moved naturally. Stepping into the frame and suiting up was really easy. There are five buttons on the hands for controlling the fingers, which is the only part to be controlled by electronics through a battery pack on the frame’s back.

The fingers have separate articulation, they can clasp as well as manipulate objects if the objects are wide and light enough.

The Skeletonics™ Arrive is priced at 10,000,000 JPY, which is roughly Rs 65.6 lakh (tax included).
