PHILADELPHIA — Need a hand lifting something? A robotic device invented by University of Pennsylvania engineering students can help its wearer carry an additional 40 pounds. Titan Arm looks and sounds like part of a superhero’s costume. But its creators say it’s designed for ordinary people — those who need either physical rehabilitation or a little extra muscle for their job. In technical terms, the apparatus is an untethered, upper-body exoskeleton; to the layman, it’s essentially a battery-powered arm brace attached to a backpack. Either way, Titan Arm’s cost-efficient design has won the team accolades and at least $75,000 in prize money. ‘‘They built something that people can relate to,’’ said Robert Carpick, chairman of Penn’s mechanical engineering department.
CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian security forces fired tear gas to disperse students protesting outside Cairo University in support of the country’s ousted Islamist president Tuesday as unrest spread to a second college campus in the capital.Across town, students at the Islamic Al-Azhar University in eastern Cairo have clashed sporadically with police since Sunday as they rally in support of 20 of their peers who have been arrested and charged for protesting against the military-backed authorities.Since the military removed President Mohammed Morsi from power in early July, Egypt’s security forces have conducted a relentless crackdown against the ousted leader’s Muslim Brotherhood, killing more than 1,000 of the fundamentalist group’s supporters and rounding up most of its leaders.
