Inflatable Exoskeletons, a ‘Fundamental Jump’ in Technology

I may be putting a little too much into our own soft-robotic exoskeleton project, but I actually found this video quite flattering.
The article and video concerns a “Fundamental Jump” in technology concerning inflatable, cheap and lightweight exoskeletons. This is pretty much exactly what I’ve been spending the past 6 months developing with 4 fellow students at DTU. I thought my idea was original but it seems that others had picked up on the wipe as well 🙂

I admit that our system is much less sophisticated than what theirs look like, but at least they seem to think it’s the idea that is the “jump” rather than the execution.

Seems we’re on the right track!
