Industrial exoskeleton to help builders easily lift blocks weighing 90 kg Source:

In the near future construction of houses will take much less time, because workers will be able to raise their arms heavy concrete blocks. Sounds like fiction, but it is to this aim manufacturers of exoskeletons that allow people to lift objects weighing hundreds of pounds as easily as if it were normal packages of food. The creation of such devices are engaged in many companies, but the company Sarcos Robotics has advanced beyond all — the Guardian exoskeleton XO Max was the first one runs completely on the energy of a small battery.

According to the developers, the energy of the battery is calculated on continuous work for eight hours. Moreover, the design of the exoskeleton allows you to replace a discharged battery with a new charge during operation without switching the device off. We can say that the manufacturer has fully achieved its goal of an exoskeleton is ready to work anywhere and does not require a wired connection to a huge power source.

Our innovations in optimizing the use of energy, we did what any other robotic company in the world could do with a powerful exoskeleton or humanoid robots is to make a device the size of a man to work for eight hours from a single battery.

Ben Wolff, CEO of Sarcos Robotics

It is Reported that Guardian XO Max provides people the strength increases in the ratio of 20:1. This means that the weight is 45 kg will appear to man as light as 2.2 kg. the Exoskeleton instantly reacts to movement and significantly improves the performance of people is what makes it especially interesting for construction companies.

The Start of sales of the Guardian XO Max is scheduled for 2020, but it will be provided as a service. One hour will cost $ 25, this amount will include both the skeleton and the installation and service. In 2019, a similar product will provide the company LG — the exhibition will be shown performing the same work.
