Meet Arque: an artificial bio-inspired tail that serves as an extension of your body to support your body when lifting and carrying heavy objects. It can also be used for full-body haptic feedback in virtual reality environments.
Arque’s internal structure is driven by 4 artificial muscles. Its length and weight are adjustable to accommodate the user’s body. Arque can provide force on 8 directions. The structure is inspired by the seahorse tail.
