Well, well, well ATS. It appears that Panasonic has announced plans to sell consumer grade Exoskeleton suits, the Assist Suit AWN-03, to the general public this September. They say that the suit will be for professions where this kind of tech could come in handy such as Agriculture, forestry work, and construction work. The planned cost for the suit is $8,000.



Panasonic recently revealed plans to sell a consumer-grade robotic exoskeleton suit later this year. The Assist Suit AWN-03 is designed to help manual labor workers lift heavy objects with less strain, thus potentially reducing the risk of long-term injury.
The futuristic suit was developed by Panasonic subsidiary Activelink. Weighing just 13 pounds, the Assist Suit attaches to the back, thighs and feet of its wearer and helps them lift an additional 33 pounds. Panasonic says it’s best suited for people weighing between 110 and 176 pounds.


About time this tech is made available! That's all I got to say. What says ATS?

Only for people between 110 and 176 pounds? I guess they don't care about the American consumer

Needs to be stronger and more streamline to the contours of the body look at metal gear solid and thats what they need to think about making in order to make it even remotly interesting to the public.

Think of something you could wear underneath your clothes and not be noticed by others. . . .

We've seen this in movies for years now so you know the tech has been developed for quite some time and is way more highly advanced than the crap they want to sell for $8k.

Yes. I remember first seeing it in the movie "Aliens" in about 1988. It's not much now but it will get better once there is competition for making the same product.

You can be sure the military have it advanced as need be by now. We give movie creators way more credit than they deserve. The ideas come from real life situations that they've become privy to. I'd be willing to bet that some of those move receipts go to black ops projects. Check the movie "The Last Shot".

I'll take the suit over a sore back for the rest of my retired life, thank you.

And how much for workers comp otherwise?

Idk either.

Would expect a bit more but could still be useful, the weight of the thing is low.

So while wearing this thing , would a 33pound weight feel like zero? Or maybe half its weight. Is that how it works?
