Exoskeleton designed to assist agricultural workers and gardeners
curated by , December 30, 2012


“The Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology has developed an agriculture robot suit designed specifically to help out with tough agricultural work like pulling radishes because about 40 percent of agricultural workers in Japan are aged 65 or over.”


John Payne‘s insight:

Such a suit could also be used for motion capture, to build a library of plant-handling movements and techniques, for later use by fully robotic gardeners.
