MIT robot augments you with two extra arms

June 6th, 2014 § 0 comments

Some folks over at MIT are working robotic limbs that augment, rather than replace, your existing arms. While these are crude prototypes it’s easy to imagine this tech being used in building and manufacturing. Combine it with a Siri type language interpreter and things start to get pretty serious.

“LimBot, hold this board and hand me the drill.”

“LimBot, lift me up to the next floor.”

Add some feet and this could be better than an exoskeleton.
