A Chinese food delivery company has been testing an exoskeleton its couriers could wear which would allow them to carry a lot more stuff. And while they’re at it look like the world’s most expensive Death Stranding cosplayers.
The suits are made by ULS Robotics, a firm that specializes in the research of exoskeletons to help workers lift loads in industries like transport, mail and logistics.
In this specific case, though, its Ele.me, China’s answer to DoorDash/Uber Eats, whose decision to test a ULS suit using large stacked boxes on a courier’s back will look pretty familiar to anyone who has been near video games for the past few years.
Even that news tweet and its accompanying video mention comparisons with Death Stranding.
