A team of British researchers thinks the future lies in wearable soft robotics. They've developed robotic muscles; air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position.

Getting this technology into the trousers might be 10 years away, but it is set to give that added boost to our ability to stand and walk when we need it most.

Are you foreseeing battles between Linux trousers and Windows trousers? Oh, wait, that thing's a puffin isn't it. Never mind then...

For elderly or physically disabled, or even those requiring physiotherapy, this might be helpful.
