Do you remember Ripley fighting the Alien queen? If not, here’s a quick reminder:

Real exoskeletons are now making their way into the construction industry to increase safety and productivity for all workers. These machines aim to reduce any strain gained from tasks ranging from screwing car bolts overhead in a car factory to drilling into walls while holding up heavy equipment.

Exoskeletons range from supporting a worker’s back, legs, and hands to supporting the user’s entire body.
