  • Last year, German Bionic revealed a fourth generation of its Cray X exoskeleton, keeping things light by employing a carbon fiber frame.
  • The 5th-gen Cray X carries over the carbon fiber frame, IoT functionality and smart factory integration from its predecessor, but now comes with a more powerful battery, aimed at delivering more power to the user for longer.
  • An assistance system for new users has been built into the design, which displays hints and instructions on the integrated display to get them up and running quickly and safely, while an AI-based ergonomics early warning system alerts wearers about poor posture or incorrect lifting methods.
