X1 Exoskeleton Helps Astronauts Stay in Shape and Could Help the Paralyzed Walk Again

NASA has a robot called Robonaut 2 operating on the international space station right now. NASA and the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition have announced a spinoff technology from the Robonaut 2 program. The spinoff technology is a exoskeleton called the X1.

The X1 is worn over the legs and runs up the back and around the shoulders. It has multiple joints with 10° of freedom including for motorized joints at the hips and knees and six passive joints allowing for sidestepping, turning, and pointing. The exoskeleton could be used for resistance exercising when in space and can also be used to help paraplegics on earth walk again.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
