I've known about the Sarcos exo for a while (too lazy to go dig up the old link that I posted a year or so back) and I think it's way cool tech. How much longer before Shiro style landmates?
Couple of criticisms though. First, it looks like it's powered by batteries. (For the demo it was tethered, so who knows what the real one actually uses.) Second, the soles of the shoes are ridiculously thick. Strangely, I was thinking of some ways around that just last week. Don't know if I can get sufficient precision out of the sensor I have in mind, and thermal stability will be an issue, but if it works... I think I can do force sensors in about 1/5th the thickness seen there. Also I think eventually some sort of pivoting toe section is going to be necessary. The load lifting capacity is a good start, but I hope it will go up dramatically as time goes on.
Thanks to j_b for the link!
