Rock-Kid JetPacks coming soon!
Get ready for a new exciting prototype! Introducing the Rock-kid Jetpack! I've had the awesome job of developing sweet military robotics for the past 4 years, and if there is one thing I’ve noticed, it's that no one gets more excited over jetpacks than kids! Don’t get me wrong, every person that has ever worn the real JetPack smiles from ear to ear when they thrust it up for the first time, Army Majors, Lieutenant Colonels, even football stars, have all had the awesome thrill of putting on the one off JetPack I built to get the average soldier running faster than ever thought possible. But it was the children that got to see it, take a picture in it, or even just dream about one day having their very own JetPack that inspired me the most. I recently demoed the JetPack at this past Super Bowl in Phoenix and every kid that came by was dying just to get a picture with it! But it’s more than that….. It’s a dream all in itself, a dream to inspire, a dream to motivate, a dream that shows children that anything is possible and if they work hard, their dreams can come true! It’s a dream that I hope will get children involved in math and science, but most of all, their imaginations! A chance to get your child, or you niece, nephew, brother, sister, ANYONE, back outside, loving life and dreaming bigger than ever! Take this chance with me, help me start my dream and make whomever you plan on giving the Rock-Kid JetPack to the happiest kid ever!
New Robotic Exoskeleton Coming Soon REST - EXO
I am in the process of developing a new robotic exoskeleton! REST - EXO (Robotic Exoskeleton Support Technology) will be bringing robotic exoskeletons to the masses! The REST - EXO will feature cutting edge technology to help people regain or utilize their mobility to the MAX! People with knee, hip, or ankle pain will be able to walk and stand for hours on end with the exoskeleton helping to support their weight. Healthy individuals will be able to hike for miles carrying heavy loads and taking their own weight off their feet! The best part? The REST -EXO is being designed right now to be a low cost solution for people to increase their mobility! With a goal of coming in below $3000, the REST - EXO will be affordable enough for everyone to use! Keep an eye out for the new Kickstarter campaign starting soon!

on the up coming episode.
Develops New Jet Pack to Augment Human Capabilities
Researchers Thomas Sugar Phd. and Jason Kerestes have
developed a "Jet Pack" to assist in human locomotion. The
device is still in early testing, however it has already
demonstrated dramatic improvements to test subjects
Demonstrates Metabolic Augmentation @ ARL
Data has just come in! The most recent tests at the
Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Grounds
confirms that my newest device effectively reduces the
metabolic cost for running at high speeds. The device,
coined "Air Legs" because of its utilization of pneumatic
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.
