REX, the robotic exoskeleton for the disabled
Disabled people get all the cool shit.
Called REX, short for “robotic exoskeleton”, the legs weigh 38 kg (84lb) and are individually made for each user. The first pair is expected to sell for $150,000 (£97,600) the equivalent cost of 20 standard wheelchairs. The inventors claim that due to the upright and mobile nature of their creation, users will not suffer the burns, scrapes and bladder infections that can come with wheelchair use.
