One of Indi’s spotlight products has the challenge to designing an affordable pediatric exoskeleton. In order to have the whole world’s input, Indi has made the exoskeleton, named Alice, an open source program. Alice will help kids walk on their own two feet. In addition to Alice, a second project is being worked on that will help support and move a single knee, named Aknee (pronounced Annie).
