The Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology has designed what’s been dubbed a wearable agriculture robotic suit for tough farming work, according to a report by website Japan Probe.

Essentially, the wearer’s muscles are aided by the suit’s eight motors positioned around troublesome areas, such as the shoulders, elbows and knees.

Its designers hope to bring the exoskeleton to market within two years. It’s expected to cost between ¥500,000 and ¥1m (£7669/€8425/$11,195).
