Malaysian research student Haziq Ramli wore an outfit resembling a light jetpack, with poles strapped to his biceps, to wield a long pruning pole that clipped the sharp fronds and heavy bunches of fruit from oil palm trees nearly twice his height.

Working on a three-acre (1.2-hectare) family estate, he was part of a team trying to perfect the gadget, called a wearable exoskeleton, that promises to lighten the load for labourers who have to manipulate pruning poles weighing as much as 8 kg (18 lbs).

Researcher Hazlina Salamat places a sensor on her lab assistant's arm to test Terer, a prototype exoskeleton at Malaysia's University of Technology's lab in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 20, 2022. Hazlina estimates 200,000 ringgit ($43,200) had been spent on developing prototypes, and envisions the exoskeleton could cost around 7,000 ringgit ($1,510) if mass-produced. REUTERS/Hasnoor Hussain
