The actual suit only weighs 3 Kilos but if you want to wear it you also need to carry around an air compressor and regulator which are required to activate the pneumatics. Thus the suit is not portable so far and unlikely to be used in the agrarian field but it will likely find insdustrial uses.
It’s also not commercial yet, so there is no price published, but very likely this little sub-market will be blowing up in the next few years as industrialists try to come up with new ways to make their poor workers more productive.
The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) introduced its new humanoid Taizo, a 70-centimeter-high articulated robot with 26 joints, which can demonstrate about 30 kinds of exercises aimed at helping elderly people do exercise.
The University of Tokyo's development team showed off its batting robot, which can hit any ball by detecting its course using a high-speed camera capable of processing 1,000 images per second. The batting robot identifies the ball position every 1/1000 second, adjusting the batting position in a mere 0.2 seconds to hit it back in the targeted direction.
