Over the past few years, we’ve covered a number of different companies trying to rip exoskeleton technology out of the world of science-fiction and make it a reality. A few, like Comau, have actually brought the product to market. One company wants to take exoskeleton technology and leverage it to allow us to perform better at leisurely activities like skiing? Roam Robotics wants to make that possible with the Elevate robotic ski xo. Essentially an exoskeleton you wear on your legs, Elevate boosts your quad strength and anticipates your actions so sensors can automatically adjust torque to give you more control, stronger turns and longer runs, while simultaneously reducing muscle fatigue and joint pressure. Roam Robotics Elevate robotic skis aren’t going to make an amateur capable of tackling black diamonds, but they will let the experienced skier squeeze out a few more runs in the day without additional fatigue.

Lululemon has made quite a few innovations in the world of athletic wear over the years. Their ABC Joggers incorporate one of our favorites—their famous ABC (anti-ball crushing) engineering. That’s right, these sleek joggers are engineered to give the boys room to breathe regardless of what you’re doing while you’re wearing them. With the addition of a secure zip pocket and a hidden phone sleeve, they’re great for trips to the gym or travel. And since they’re available in eight different colorways, there’s a pair that will work with every outfit.
