We Test Drove A Bionic Exoskeleton That Will Make You Rethink Aging

This Is What It’s Like To Test-Drive A Bionic Exoskeleton Meet R70i, the bionic exoskeleton that drains away your super powers to help you empathize with the elderly

But far from bestowing its wearers with superpowers, this bionic exoskeleton mimics the aging process, to help raise awareness and empathy for the elderly….

The goal, of course, is to offer insight into the aging process, and teach us to have some empathy for the elderly. With 75 million baby boomers reaching retirement, and more than 70 percent of Americans over the age of 65 requiring long-term care, a little empathy could go a long way.
