Hyundai’s Transportation Exoskeleton Looks Straight Out of Edge of Tomorrow

By: | May 17th, 2016


Edge of Tomorrow is a colossally underrated film, one of the best sci-fi flicks I’ve seen in the past couple of years.

If you haven’t seen it, the film stars Tom Cruise attempting to save humanity from aliens in essentially the same type of transportation exoskeleton we see here from Hyundai.

I’m not sure how long Hyundai’s transportation exoskeleton has been in production, but the similarities between it and the Edge of Tomorrow are striking.

The suit will be part of the company’s ‘Next Mobility’ Group, which focuses on moving people from point A to point B.

A working transportation exoskeleton from Hyundai would find plenty of applications, from factory workers to soldiers carrying out military operations.

Of course, the “wearable robot” could also be used by regular citizens to stave off an attack on Earth from extraterrestrials, should stuff ever really hit the fan.
