We’ve recently been looking at robot companions to humans. But now let’s now look at a kind of robot co-worker. Twelve schools around Europe are now working on developing an exoskeleton for the workplace. Professor Darwin Caldwell at the Italian Institute of Technology has been working on the project. He says it’s not about how a robotic suit would make you super strong. It’s about helping you with endurance.
