These black and white pictures show early concept models of Hardiman, the experimental exoskeleton prototype GE created in the 1960s. Hardiman was intended to give the average person the ability to lift 1,500 pounds, but it never left the lab. Now, you can recreate the experimental model at home. Click here to get the template for the paper craft Hardiman, designed by Matthew Hawkins.
The template fits an eight inch drawing model, but we think it would look equally nice on Barbie. If you decide to get creative, use the submission tool to show us your prototype!
