‘Superflex’ suit

A group of California-based researchers have brought the batsuit to life with a model that gives soldiers and the elderly super powers. Called Superflex, this superhero suit uses onboard sensors that learn the wearer’s movements, which is used to turn on the power at the precise moment it is needed. It sends out a jolt of supporting power to the legs, arms or torso when users needs some extra help with a heavy load or, as for the elderly, walking assistance.
