LG debuts wearable robot at IFA 2018

LG Electronics unveiled to the public at IFA 2018 in Berlin its first “human-centric” wearable robot. But unlike previously announced robots from LG such as Guide Robot, Cleaning Robot and Serving Robot, LG CLOi SuitBot does not navigate airport lounges and hotel hallways by itself. What it does is support and enhance a user’s legs to allow for more mobility and lower limb strength.

Last year LG invested in a startup that develops robots to overcome the limitations of the human body in everyday life. LG CLOi SuitBot was designed in collaboration with the startup, SG ROBOTICS.

A comfortable fit and naturally rotating joints allow the CLOi SuitBot to move in a more relaxed and natural way to enhance the lower body while walking, standing or working. 

Its sandal-type shoes and automatic adjustment feature allow the wearer to get in and out of the suit more easily.

“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,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG’s Home Appliance and Air Solution Company. “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.”

To mark this special occasion, The Dubai Mall has created a Saudi National Day Offer Booklet exclusively for Saudi nationals, which includes a range of dining deals and shopping offers. Distributed at guest services desks, Saudi nationals can collect this booklet by simply showing their national ID.
