Wearable Robots

Learn about in advances in powered exoskeletons—a kind of wearable robot—in this video adapted from NOVA scienceNOW. Correspondent and New York Times technology columnist David Pogue explores the development of sophisticated robots that can be integrated with the human body. The company Ekso Bionics created a robot, called Ekso, that can help paraplegics walk, and has also developed another exoskeleton, called HULC, which is designed to help people carry heavy loads. This resource is useful for introducing components of Engineering Design (ETS) from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to grades 5-12 students.
