RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED AN EXOSKELETON BOOT THAT SAVES ENERGY

 

RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED A BOOT THAT ACTUALLY SAVES ENERGY WHILE WALKING, 7% IS THE ACTUAL AMOUNT.  THIS IS EQUIVELENT TO 45 POUNDS FOR THE AVERAGE MALE.  IT WORKS WITHOUT BATTERY POWER AND USES OUR OWN ENERGY. THEY CALL IT HUMAN WALKING OPTIMIZED.

IT IS BUILT OF LIGHTWEIGHT CARBON-BASED MATERIALS AND HAS A SPRING THAT CONNECTS THE BACK OF THE FOOT TO JUST BELOW THE BACK OF THE KNEE, WHERE IT ATTACHES TO A MECHANICAL CLUTCH. THE DOWNSIDE IS THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE A ROBOT SQUEAKING THROUGH THE WOODS.
