Rex Bionics is a world leader in the field of high-level advanced robotic exoskeletons and this is just the beginning of the story for Rex.
In 2010 the Rex Bionics robotic exoskeleton was listed by The Huffington Post as being one of the best technical devices of the decade alongside the iPhone and the USB stick.
Since its public launch in New Zealand in mid-July 2010 with the New Zealand Prime Minister, Rt Hon John Key, Rex has received incredible interest from all over the world.
The first video about Rex viewed more than 350,000 hits within a short period of time, with enquiries from more than 145 countries around the globe.
Rex is a complex electromechanical device, custom designed, patented and built by the scientists and engineers at Rex Bionics. Each Rex contains thousands of precision parts comprising Rex's limbs which are controlled by a network of 29 micro controllers.
The specialised array of micro controllers in Rex allows it to move and respond within milliseconds ensuring Rex movements feel smooth and instantaneous to the Rex user.
