The Elderly May One Day Swap Their Motorized Scooters for Robotic Suits. Robotic exoskeletons, long a staple of sci-fi novels, comic books, and movies, are now part of the real world—and they’ve mostly followed the sci-fi model.

It looks like Lexus isn’t the only car manufacturing company in town that has interest in developing other projects, such as its hover board concept, but it seems Hyundai is also joining the bandwagon to work on a side project.Hyundai recently shared its work on a real-life Iron Man suit that would essentially give paraplegics a way to walk again, or to instill long standing abilities in the elderly or the weak who would otherwise need to sit down after a few minutes of standing.

This Exoskeleton Allows Paralyzed People To Walk. The world watched in awe last year when a paraplegic man strode onto the pitch at the football World Cup and took the first kick.

This Exoskeleton Allows Paralyzed People To Walk

With the assistance of an incredibly hefty, Iron Man-style bodysuit, the man was able to control his movements with his thoughts and even experience the sensation of the strike. Now, this suit was obviously not intended for consumers, and it’s far from practical for everyday use, but there is a contender out there that is providing paralyzed users with a freedom they probably thought they would never achieve again. That is the ReWalk exoskeleton, brought to the world by medical tech company ReWalk Robotics.

Claimed to be the “most customizable and most researched exoskeleton,” the system was designed to allow those with complete or incomplete leg paralysis, for example from a spinal cord injury, to not only stand up but to walk around independently. Avec ces chaussures de course, il est possible de courir à 40 km/h. N’est pas Usain Bolt ou Forrest Gump qui veut !

Avec ces chaussures de course, il est possible de courir à 40 km/h

Mais désormais, il est possible de s’en approcher grâce à cette paire de chaussures de course inspirée des kangourous, et qui permet d’atteindre aisément les 40 km/h en courant. Keahi Seymour est un concepteur américain à l’origine de « The Bionic Boots », cette paire de chaussures de course qui permettent d’augmenter sa vitesse sans pour autant devoir réaliser plus d’efforts. Cette idée lui est venue lorsqu’il n’avait que 12 ans, devant un documentaire sur les kangourous. « Le présentateur a dit que si le kangourou se déplace avec une telle efficacité, c’est parce qu’il utilise ses tendons d’Achille comme des ressorts. Je me suis dit : Pourquoi ne pas reproduire cela dans un dispositif qui pourrait propulser un être humain ? » déclare-t-il. Yves Rossy: Fly with the Jetman. Jetpack Will Help Runners Hit 4-Minute Miles.

There are times when seconds count, and the ability to move quickly could mean the difference between life and death.

Jetpack Will Help Runners Hit 4-Minute Miles

In combat, soldiers can carry upwards of 90 pounds in their rucksacks and on their bodies, which significantly reduces how fast they can move on foot. Jason Kerestes, a student at Arizona State University, has developed the 4 Minute Mile: a jetpack that helps soldiers move faster, without requiring them to physically exert more. While jetpacks are usually associated with flying around, this one just gives the runner a boost, helping them to shave off time while also decreasing the amount of effort put into the activity. Initial testing has shown that even while loaded up with the jetpack equipment, the runner was able to complete a 200-meter run faster and with decreased metabolic cost than when he ran on his own. This project was completed in ASU’s iProjects program, which hooks students up with faculty and partners in the industry to help solve real problems.

Skully : le casque de moto connecté ultime. Android est partout : dans les téléphones, dans les tablettes, dans les télévisions et bientôt dans les voitures.

Skully : le casque de moto connecté ultime

Mais pas encore dans les casques de moto. Ce manque sera comblé dès le mois de mai 2015 grâce à Skully, un casque de moto connecté qui fera baver n’importe quel motard technophile. Skully est un casque de moto connecté conçu par la société éponyme et qui recherche actuellement des fonds sur le site financement participatif Indiegogo. Ou plutôt qui recherchait des fonds, puisque deux jours seulement après la mise en ligne du projet, Skully a déjà récolté 850 000 dollars, soit 600 000 dollars de plus que la somme initialement demandée. US Army Robots Will Outnumber Human Soldiers in a Decade. Exosquelette. Paraplegic In "Ironman Suit" Will Take The First Kick In The 2014 World Cup.

The opening ceremony for the upcoming 2014 World Cup promises to be one to remember as, according to AFP News, a paraplegic individual will walk onto the pitch and give the first kick, all thanks to an Iron Man style bodysuit controlled by his brain.

Paraplegic In "Ironman Suit" Will Take The First Kick In The 2014 World Cup

The event, which takes place on Thursday 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, will unveil for the first time the exoskeleton which is the result of years of work by a dedicated team of 156 scientists from across the globe. Leading the research is Brazilian neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis who first dreamt up the idea for the exoskeleton back in 2002. His ultimate goal is to allow paralyzed individuals to walk again, but he also wants to showcase his invention to the world to prove that Brazil is investing in things beyond football.
