Superflex is a robotic human augmentation project that feels as though it's straight out of a comic book. The prototype is a suit that enhances a person's physical abilities. Of course, the suit isn't meant to be donned by amateur vigilantes. Instead, through robotic human augmentation, the developers aim to help disabled individuals perform daily tasks in a manageable way again.

These developers hail from SRI International. By focusing on real customers, the company believes such a product will be able to see the light of day sooner. Tech Crunch writes that the robotic human augmentation design comes as "a full-body suit filled with soft muscle-like actuators that detect your movements and give them a boost."
