VIDEO: Japan’s Incredible Power Loader Robo-Exoskeleton!
Can carry 30 kg with one arm
All hail Japan’s robot revolution! A new power amplification 'bot under development from a subsidy of Panasonic brings us one step closer to real-life anime mecha and can one day help the humble human race with important tasks starting with heavy lifting and cleaning up nuclear accidents. Get a looky-loo at the beast known as "Power Loader" below!
As the guy in the video sez, “The aim is to achieve a robot that can freely utilize power beyond human strength, in emergencies or on construction sites.” But we all know that this road leads to Mobile Suit Gundams…or failing that, a climatic punch-out with an Alien queen like in Aliens below.
