Who said that making an exoskeleton is for PhD engineers backed by multi-million dollar companies?! A group of high school students from the San Francisco Bay Area are working on a powered exoskeleton, the AJAX, in a garage in preparation for the May 2015 Maker Fair. You can see the student’s video showing their progress below:
The AJAX team consisting of eight high school students has set up a kickstarter page to help fund their project and as of this date have raised over $7000.

While the exoskeleton suit may not be as sleek and responsive as a professional one, it is highly impressive that a group of very young individuals is not intimidated by the complexity of such a project!
