Titan Arm - Super Human Strength Arm 

If you would like to be a super hero for a day, this Titan Arm can make it happen! They have milled the exoskeleton system out of 6061-T6 aluminum. It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, check out this video of the mill crashing when some wrong coordinates were entered by accident. The technology and testing behind the arm is extensive. They have attempted to design it in such a way that it feels intuitive to use.

“One way of creating a natural user experience is to give a quick, smooth response to the user input.  This is no small feat; how can you tell when a user requires additional strength?  Electromyography is a potential solution.  Electromyography, or EMG, is a way of sensing muscle activity through electrical signals.  When muscles are activated by the brain, an electrical potential can be measured in the range of 50uV to 30 mV.  By amplifying and filtering the signals, it’s possible to read and decompose the signals.  When the muscles are inactive, the electrical potential is low; however, when lifting an object, the electrical potential rises.”
