If you’re reading this, chances are you probably wouldn’t mind owning your very own Iron Man Suit. Sure it’s a massive weapon of destruction at the hands of Tony Stark, but wouldn’t it be nice to have some assistance lifting those heavy loads of laundry?
Exoskeleton systems like the Iron Man suit of cinematic and comic lore are getting closer to reality. Engineers at MIT are conducting in-depth research into just what a military exoskeleton might look like and ultimately what it needs to do. This research project is at the cutting edge of human exoskeleton research, and they’re bringing the world closer to making Iron Man a reality. Take a closer look at the research from MIT in the video below!
