Roam Robotics has developed an exoskeleton specifically for skiers meant to protect the torque in your knees. The tech utilizes sensors to predict movements while using air bladders and fabric actuators to tweak your motion in an instant. The bionic tool is meant for older skiers or individuals with muscle fatigue or knee injuries.
Enthusiasts will have to fork over $99 USD to reserve the exoskeleton ahead of its January release next year, and it’s speculated that the price will be around $2,000-$2,500 USD.
