‘Super Suit’ Invention Proves We Are Living in the Future
From tracking your daily target of 10,000 steps to using a smart watch to check our bank account, many of us already take advantage of wearable technology. But electronics that can be worn on the body are about more than personal convenience. One potential complication regards mobility.
A lightweight, comfortable ‘super suit’ has been designed by Seismic, that works with the muscles to help boost their power. The suit has ‘electric muscles’ that are run using a motor, and are attached to joints. There is a sensor tracking system that lets muscles know when to move.
According to Rich Mahoney, the CEO and Founder of Seismic, “Right now the only kinds of products that can help people are walkers and canes. The other option is to stay home or to limit your activity. And most people choose that because they don’t really want to associate themselves with those other kinds of products.”
This suit is the first item in their range of powered clothing and is set to launch in the UK, US and Japan first by the end of the year.
