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.
