HMIL - Jet Pack Featured on ASU Website!
Today ASU Research Matters released the newest video covering a test of the ultra light, thrust producing, running augmentation device called the JET PACK. Go to ASU.edu/Research Matters or watch the clip below!
HMIL - Featured on the Discovery Channel
Thats Right! We recently finished filming a segment
for the Discovery Channel. Check back soon for more details
on the up coming episode.
HMIL - Develops New Jet Pack to Augment Human Capabilities
Researchers Thomas Sugar Phd. and Jason Kerestes have
developed a "Jet Pack" to assist in human locamotion. The
device is still in early testing, however it has already
demonstrated dramatic improvements to test subjects
HMIL - Demonstrates Metabolic Augmentation @ ARL
Data has just come in! The most recent tests at the
Army Ressearch Laboratory at Aberdeen Prooving Grounds
comfirms ASU's newest device effectively reduces the
metabolic cost for running at high speeds. The device,
coined "Air Legs" because of its utelization of pnuematic
cylinders at the back of the thigh, proved its capabilities
during human subject testing at ARL, demonstrating over a
10% reduction in metabolic cost for high speed running when
compared to NO DEVICE AT ALL.
