With this robot, we seemed to have 4 arms

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop an artificial robotic arm that can be attached to the human body. Thus, as man can have four hands.

As reported by Gizmag on Thursday, July 3, 2014, the robot arm could help humans do the work like fixing a ceiling or roof space to install the lights. This robotic arm was created by Federico Parietti and Baldin Llorens-Bonilla of d'Arbeloff Laboratory for Information Systems at MIT.

Federico working on the bottom of the robot arm, stability and strengthening program. While Baldin working on the robot shoulder along with the coordination and planning tasks. The concept of Supernumerary Robot Limbs (SRL) is demonstrated in the work of installing panels on the roof of the aircraft. The robot hand can be inserted into the human body through the pack on the back of the user.

This robotic arm is also helpful to the stability of the wearer when working in the field of building construction. "We wanted to design and ergonomics as possible without disturbing the robot's capabilities and strengths," said Baldin.

This latest design is a third-generation robotic arm with a weight of 5 to 5.4 kilograms. The research team plans to make further development to reduce weight, increase strength and coordination of the robot arm. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG]
