Superflex Aura Powered Suit Provides Extra Muscle Power for Elderly People

We have so many helpful technology designed specially for an aging population to become independent at home, but the challenge of this project is to give elderly people mobility outside the home. Superflex Aura Powered Suit offers a wearable technology that reacts to body’s natural movements. It gives extra muscle power to complement user’s strength in staying upright, getting up, and sitting down.

Designed to be adoptable and easy to use, this suit is a great daily use for the elderly. Using the principle of biomimicry, this suit configuration is anatomically aligned with natural muscular composition of the user. Considering this suit will be worn by human, comfort was the main priority when designing this suit. Hard technology components such as control boards, motors, and batteries are designed into hexagonal low-profile pods. All these pods are attach to fabric origami fold-ins, allowing movement in 3 dimensions and the hardware to expand without interrupting user’s movements. This system also enables scalable system to adapt to different user muscular needs and heights.

Aeronautical-Inspired Watch Concept by Germain Baillot

A futuristic, cool concept watch has been submitted by Germain Baillot, unfortunately, there’s no name just yet for this project.

Here is the watch I’ve designed inspired by the aeronautical sector. Its modern and innovative design will enable you to know instantaneous 24-hour world time indication (GMT). To better understand the functionality of the piece, just have a look at the animation I created. The design and 3D modelisation have been made with Autodesk Alias software, the rendering and animation with Keyshot software, and finally the Post Production with After Effect, Premiere Pro and Photoshop.

From a more technical point of view, with its vertical tourbillon, the watch indicates the time by hours and minutes markings on the outer rollers, while the center roller displays the major time zones. The crowns on each ends unscrew out to adjust the watch (Hour/Minute and GMT).
