A wearable robotic limb system speculates the social interactions between digital cyborgs. It enables the wearer to attach and detach robotic limbs and exchange them with others.
Half a century since the concept of a cyborg was introduced, JIZAI-Bodies (digital cyborgs), enabled by the spread of wearable robotics, are the focus of much research in recent times. JIZAI ARMS is a supernumerary robotic limb system consisting of a wearable base unit with six terminals and detachable robot arms controllable by the wearer. The system was designed to enable social interaction between multiple wearers, such as an exchange of arm(s), and explore possible interactions between digital cyborgs in a cyborg society.
