  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Hyundai Creates Exoskeleton Robot Suit Thing for Humans

Recommended Posts

Now here’s a head scratcher for you: Hyundai, known primarily as a purveyor of increasingly excellent but otherwise entirely mainstream vehicles, has announced that it is working on a so-called wearable Iron Man suit. Forget being first to in-car Android Auto integration—this is the Hyundai tech we’re officially most interested in now.

Hyundai isn’t far off in associating its exoskeleton suit to that worn by Iron Man, for it’s very literally a mechanized contraption that straps over a user’s torso, arms, and legs. The human at the controls can then manipulate the robot’s arms and legs, and as you’d expect, those limbs are far more powerful than the average person’s weak sticks. According to reports from Korea— Hyundai’s description of the suit, which appeared on its Korean website’s blog along with photos, is in Korean, which Google roughly translated for us—the suit helps the wearer lift hundreds of pounds, and it can also be used as a physical therapy aid. Beyond those tidbits, Hyundai also promises that it is working to commercialize the suit for sale to factories, rehab facilities, and even the military.

In the meantime, consider yourself warned, Asimo: Honda may have taught you to play soccer, but Hyundai is chasing robot bad-assery here.
