Amazing human exoskeletons: Eythor Bender on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

Eythor Bender of Berkeley Bionics brings onstage two amazing exoskeletons, HULC and eLEGS — robotic add-ons that could one day allow a human to carry 200 pounds without tiring, or allow a wheelchair user to stand and walk. It’s a powerful onstage demo, starring wheelchair user Amanda Boxtel, with implications for human potential of all kinds. (Recorded at TED2011, March 2011, in Long Beach, CA. Duration: 6:24)
