Robot People – Super human strength by wearable power assist suits

Besides the questions about hoe environment changes the body and vice versa, we like to ask further questions related to embodiment:

What belongs to a body and what not?
When does a body stop be be human, and when does it start to become artificial?
How is steroid use different than enhancing the body with prosthetic devices?

In this context we follow the discussion on the development of motorised-geriatric manufacturing and other related technologies, like the pneumatic “Wearable Power Assist Suit”, that has been developed at the Kanagawa Institute of Technology.
