The Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering facility in Okpo-dong, South Korea has begun testing a prototype version of a robotic exoskeleton that will let dock workers lift 220-pound objects in its final form. The 62-pound prototypes have a three-hour battery life and allow their wearers to walk at a normal speed.
