This wearable robot is designed by Activelink, a Kyoto-based robotic company. It seems to have greatly inspired by James Cameron’s Aliens, as the design of Power Loader highly resembles to a suit wore by Ellen Ripley in the movie.
The bot would be available in two different models, the one called MS-02 can lift up to 100 kilograms and the other model (PLL-02) weighs only 45 kilograms.
So if you are planning to become the next Iron Man by wearing the new robot then just wait, because it probably will not be around until 2015. The expected price of these labor-assisting robots will be $233,000. However, luckily universities and similar sorts of institutes would be able to have it for about $122,000.
