An “exosuit” is define as a “wearable robotic technology that can enhance physical abilities.” Until now, you mostly heard about them when you read about comic book superheroes. New tech from a collaborative effort between tech researchers at colleges like Harvard, the University of Nebraska Omaha, and Chung-Ang University in Seoul can bring that tech to real life…in the form of shorts. These robotic shorts reportedly help whoever wears them run and walk better and more efficiently. Their data shows those who wear them expend 9% less energy while walking, and 4% less while running. The future is here…even if it’s still in the research stage.
