If you refer to the above figure, you can see that a student is wearing a prototype assistance machine that equipped with 8 motors and 16 sensors. This robot suit is weighs about 55 pounds and it can assist the elderly farmers who need support for their leg muscles and joints, especially when they keep a crouching position or lift their arms high.

According to the researchers, they’re looking to use this type of robotic suit in two to three years at an initial price ranging from 500,000 to 1,000,000 yen (It’s equivalent to about $5,00 to $10,000 U.S. dollars).

Although the cost is a little bit pricey, but this robot suit can be a perfect helper in the farming industry for sure. [source]
