Project BLEEX

Need some help carrying your shopping around Asda? You need the Berkeley Lower Extremity Exoskeleton!!!

"The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) funded the BLEEX project in 2000. Last November, U.C. Berkeley?s Human Engineering and Robotics Laboratory, successfully demonstrated the first experimental Exoskeleton in which the pilot (i.e., the wearer) could carry a heavy load, while feeling only a few-pound load."



What a happy looking fellow.

if only it were programmable, would be your best friend on a Beer night.

It doesn't exactly look like a particularly light weight or flexible assembly, running in it looks like an 'optional extra'. It's just as well the millitary can always fall back on pumping their units full of stimulants... thats the only explination I can give for the odd look on his face ;)
