Raytheon Unveils 2nd Generation Exoskeleton Robotic Suit

Team Duct Tape members learned a bit about powered exoskeletons during their visit to Robrady, so it’s pretty exciting to see Raytheon‘s unveiling of its second-generation powered exoskeleton, the XOS 2, coinciding with the release of Iron Man 2 on DVD.

According to Raytheon, the XOS 2 is ligher, faster and uses 50% less power than the XOS 1 proof-of-concept robotic suit. Powered by an internal-combustion engine driving hydraulic actiations, the exoskeleton allows its wearing to lift 200lb repeatedly without tiring, says Raytheon, but is agile enough to climb stairs or kick a ball.
