Raytheon’s second-generation exoskeleton (XOS 2), essentially a wearable robotics suit, was unveiled for the first time recently during an event at the company’s Salt Lake City research facility.
“With the popularity of the Iron Man movies, people wonder if I feel like Iron Man when I suit up. I usually tell them that I can’t speak for Tony Stark, but when I’m in the suit I feel like me, only a faster, stronger version of me. Given that his character lives in a California mansion and owns a stable of very fast race cars, that’s probably as close as we’ll come to a shared experience.”
— Rex Jameson, Raytheon Sarcos Test Engineer for XOS 2
So much more impressive than Honda’s dorky exo-legs.
