Raytheon’s Awesome New XOS Exoskeleton

If you’ve been with us for a while, you’ll remember us posting about Raytheon’s original XOS Exoskeleton back in 2007, and now, the company has released the Mark II version of the suit, which apparently consumes 50% less power than the original. Check it out:

Raytheon’s second-generation exoskeleton (XOS 2), essentially a wearable robotics suit, was unveiled for the first time recently during an event at the company’s Salt Lake City research facility. XOS 2 is lighter, stronger and faster than its predecessor, yet it uses 50 percent less power, and its new design makes it more resistant to the environment.
