LG Electronics’ CLOi SuitBot is touted as the first “human-centric” wearable robot, but it doesn’t navigate airport lounges and hotel hallways by itself. What it does is support and enhance a user’s legs to allow for more mobility as well as lower limb strength, complete with naturally rotating joints that allow the CLOi SuitBot to move in a more relaxed and natural way to enhance the lower body while walking, standing or working.

Featuring sandal-type shoes and automatic adjustment, it enables the wearer to get in and out of the suit more easily, differentiating LG CLOi SuitBot other exoskeletons on the market. That’s not all, it can also connect to other LG service robots to become part of a smart working network to deliver information and tools required at work sites such as manufacturing, logistics and distribution.
“LG CLOi SuitBot is evidence of our full commitment to expanding our portfolio of service robots that deliver tangible convenience and innovation in our lives. It’s just one example of a wide range of revolutionary AI products designed to interact with users to dramatically elevate user convenience and create new opportunities to advance our robotics initiative into a next-gen growth engine,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG’s Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.
