Highly curious about things that increase my awareness, expand my perception, and make me open to being a better person.

The new Omega exoskeleton series from Hypershell is revolutionizing the outdoor adventure industry. The Shanghai startup has created a portable exoskeleton that folds into a 6.5-L form and can be easily carried in a backpack, providing assistive support that can offset up to 66 lbs of weight. The device has a range of up to 16 miles per charge, a top speed of 12 miles per hour, and nine different modes, including walking, running, hill climbing, and cycling.

The exoskeleton has one active and eight passive joints for unrestricted motion, and it uses a multi-sensor architecture to track torque, position, and force, as well as monitor leg motion and model gait in milliseconds. The AI engine predicts one’s next move and matches assistive output seamlessly, learning and adapting to the user over time for more intuitive operation.

On Kickstarter, Hypershell is currently offering three different exoskeleton models based on the same Omega platform, with pledge levels starting at HK$2,339. The base Hypershell Go has a 400-W motor, whereas the standard Pro model has the specifications listed above. The Carbon model is the lightest and most expensive, weighing 4lb.

Hikers, backpackers, mountain climbers, cyclists, and trail runners, as well as outdoor professionals such as photographers and search and rescue teams, could all benefit from the Hypershell exoskeleton. The device can also be used for everyday tasks such as walking through city streets or visiting theme parks.
