Phoenix exoskeleton aims for cheaper price, agile experience (Tomorrow Daily 308)

On today's show: an exoskeleton aiming to someday compete with electric wheelchair prices, and Microsoft sheds more light on its underwater data center experiment.

The SuitX Phoenix exoskeleton clocks in at what seems like a pricey $40,000; however, the company hopes to keep bringing the cost of its robotic suit down until it's comparable to a motorized wheelchair, giving another affordable option to paraplegics looking to expand their mobility options. In other news, Microsoft recently revealed more details about Project Natick, its underwater data center experiment. The module was nicknamed after a Halo character, and the tests seem to have gone quite well.
