Hypershell, a robotics startup fostered by Y-Combinator China, is set to introduce its outdoor exploration products, Hypershell GoX and ProX, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024. The highlight of the presentation is the Hypershell ProX, an all-terrain exoskeleton designed for a range of outdoor activities including running, hiking, and long-distance treks.
Featuring an AI-based motion engine, the exoskeleton can anticipate and adjust to the user’s movements, offering up to 9 different motion postures. It provides a powerful assistance of up to 800W output and can offset up to 30kg of weight, effectively reducing the burden of heavy backpacks and the physical strain of challenging terrains.
The ProX is designed with portability in mind; it’s foldable, ultralight at just 2kg, and can easily attach to a backpack. It operates effectively in temperatures as low as -20℃ and has an IP54 rating, indicating resistance to dust and water.
Kelvin Sun, the founder of Hypershell, highlights the product’s affordability and its potential to support outdoor enthusiasts, especially those carrying heavy loads or needing additional physical support.
