Some of the most interesting designs and concepts can be traced to design students at Universities. Here is a concept for an exoskeleton, which might interest you. Ben Millet, a design student had to work upon a concept which had to deal with shoes, movement and the body. It turned out that Ben ended up designing a DIY exoskeleton. It is designed to facilitate easy movement for the user and is supported and connected at the waist. The exoskeleton also provides easy control for the user and just the movement of the body is enough. Powered human exoskeletons have long been a part of science fiction and not yet a part of reality. However, a mechanical exoskeleton can be used in self-protective armour designing, prosthetics, and medicinal & industrial applications.
