New robotic exoskeleton aims to help farmers combat age, mutant plants

da Engadget di Donald Melanson

Well, it looks like there’s been yet another development in the exoskeleton
arms race between the US and Japan, with this latest entrant from the
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology promising to help
farmers and gardeners deal better with old age and increasingly
unwieldy crops. This one weighs in at a somewhat hefty 55 pounds but,
like most such exoskeletons, it’s able to offload most of its own
weight thanks to the use of eight motors and 16 sensors, which also, of
course, help to give its wearer some super-strength. Better still, the
researchers say the suit could be available in as soon as three years,
and cost somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000.
