But don’t worry — it’s still an ”early stage prototype device,” researchers said in a new video released last week to promote the project. “Third Arm is a wearable, passive, stabilizing device for the dismounted soldier,” Dan Baechle, a mechanical engineer at Army Research Laboratory, said in the video. Weight is a sensitive subject for ground troops, many of whom likely see the Third Arm device and assume — rightly so, at this point — that it’s just more cumbersome gear added to their kit. But Baechle said part of their intention is to learn more about the cost-reward dynamic of added weight and increased utility. “What we want to look at here is [whether] there is a trade-off between potentially added weight and impro...
