Power Loader From The Movie Aliens Soon A Reality

activelink-power-loader-concept-realization

One of the most memorable movie moments in science fiction history is when Ellen Ripley battles the mother alien in the movie Aliens. When she steps into the power loader and literally kicks the living breath out of her opponent, you just know it’s going to make movie history. Throughout the years, there have been a lot of science fiction fanatics who have wondered when we’ll actually see a real power loader. The cool thing is that it seems we won’t have to wait too much longer.

The futuristic Power Loader project is currently under development by Activelink, a Panasonic subsidiary venture, and it could very well become a common sight on work sites where heavy lifting is a big part of the everyday tasks. Activelink actually shifted their research after the Fukushima reactor accident. They are now trying to create a more compact power loader that will be able to aid in the cleanup of the accident.

The power loader light is a type of exoskeleton that will help lift heavy weights with ease. The breakthrough technology behind the power loader’s incredible strength could reinvent the way we lift things in the future. It would allow us to get rid of many of the polluting solutions we use today in order to move heavy objects from one place to another. This is particularly useful in work sites such as those in warehouses and shipping holding stations. But the primary goal is to produce a working power loader that will help rescue workers get to victims easier and faster. With the help of the power loader’s strength and agility, the effectiveness could be improved significantly. This will of course lead to more people being saved.

Currently researchers and developers at Activelink think they could easily make the exoskeleton help the individual “driving” it carry loads of up to 50-60 kg with one arm. It all depends on the knee joints of the exoskeleton, which have been shown to be the weak spot of any exoskeleton. The power loader is considered by the Japan Atomic Power Company to be one of the most potent options to help in the aid of cleaning up the reactors at Fukushima.
