About a week ago, the folks behind Iron Man 2 released the Stark Expo website which featured amazing images of a world’s fair style event that Tony Stark was bringing back for the first time in several years. Well, today they added on a new section to the site, AccuTech. This new site features a subsidiary of Stark Industries who appears to be working on a toned down exo skeleton that could be used in medical and possibly military applications. Check out the video off the site below and then take a look at Stark Industries’ press release on Accutech.
Here’s the press release:
For Immediate Release:
ACCUTECH: A SUBSIDIARY OF STARK INDUSTRIES UNVEILS PROTOTYPE ‘HAZTECH’ ARM
– FULL EXOSKELETON TO DEBUT AT STARK EXPO 2010 –
AccuTech: a subsidiary of Stark Industries has today given us a glimpse of the latest breakthrough in anthropo-robotics – the ‘HazTech Exoskeleton’.
Using revolutionary hyper-sensors and nano-hydraulic technology, the exoskeleton is able to detect and amplify body movement. Covering over 80% of the human body, it also protects its wearer from high impact and extreme temperatures.
In a video released today at www.starkexpo2010.com/accutech/ a prototype arm is shown in action, with the full exoskeleton due to be unveiled next month at the hotly anticipated Stark Expo 2010.
Charles Healey, CEO commented: “Putting aside the obvious commercial applications of HazTech, our priority is to unlock its humanitarian potential. By better protecting the lives of peacekeepers and emergency rescue teams, we can help them save the lives of others.”
