An Arizona State University professor has developed a robotic suit meant to help people walk faster and avoid workplace injuries.

The suit propels users forward 10 to 15 percent faster than normal, pushing your legs to move faster and more smoothly.

The cost is up to $15,000, but that could come down if industry leaders begin to subsidize it.
