Japanese scientists create Robocop Suit - Shigeki Toyama



Japanese scientists have created a power-assisted suit which could make users as strong as Robocop or Iron Man.

The metal-and-plastic outfit boasts eight electric motors that amplify the strength of the wearer’s arms and legs, as well as sensors that can detect movements and respond to commands through a voice-recognition system.

Professor Shigeki Toyama and his team developed the power-enhancing suit at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and Mr Toyama plans to set up a company to start producing the futuristic outfit by the end of the year.


The suits can reduce the user’s physical effort by 62 per cent on average.

Industrial robots have long been common in Japan and heavy industries may decide that the suit would help ease any physical pain experienced by workers.

When bending knees the muscular activity is reduced by half, and the suit can also take most of the strain out of crouching.

Fifteen years in the making, the “robosuit” is due to hit the Japanese market in 2012 when it will initially retail for about one million yen ($12,500), a price tag its makers hope to halve if the device is mass-produced.

There are however currently no plans so far to sell the suits overseas.

Chinese imperial works of art auction world record - Hong Kong

A selection of Chinese imperial works of art has smashed world auction records after fierce bidding at Sotheby's in Hong Kong.

An imperial white jade seal commissioned by Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty in the 18th century was sold to an Asian buyer for US$12.29 million ($8m) breaking the world auction record for both white jade and imperial seals.

The price was almost double its estimate of about US$6.4 million and reflects international interest in objects of China's glorious past.
Another star lot, a ceremonial pearl necklace believed to have belonged to Qing Emperor Yongzheng in the early 18th century, smashed the world record for any imperial jewel at auction after a telephone bidder snapped it up for US$8.7 million. The price was more than five times its highest estimate.

"They are objects that crystallised imperial power. These are something that can easily capture our clients' imagination," said Mr Nicolas Chow, Sotheby's international head of Chinese ceramics and works of art.

He said interest in Chinese works of art was booming.

"Everything is about China today," he said. "Our worry is actually not finding buyers. Our worry is how do we feed that monster that is growing on the other side of harbour, because great objects are getting scarcer and scarcer." Other eye-catching 'objects of power' included a three-tiered enamelled box from the 18th century, which broke the world record for Beijing imperial enamel ware at auction after it sold for US$3.53 million.

Although the majority of bidders which packed the auction room were Chinese, Mr Chow said there was also "very strong participation" in the bidding from Western buyers.
