And while it’s easy to see something here about the impact of technology

Exoskeletons to give wearers super-human strength and games to playfully teach children software skills for coding -- such innovations were on display at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.

Mechanical muscle

A Guardian XO exoskeleton made in a collaboration between Sarcos Robotics and Delta Air Lines let CES goers easily lift a 50-pound (22.7 kilo) suitcase with one hand with "technology fit for a superhero."

The battery-powered body suit carries its own weight and "handles the heavy lifting" for wearers, according to Delta. Workers wearing the suit may be able to lift up to 200 pounds (90.7 kilos) for as long as eight hours straight without strain or effort, according to Delta, which planned to have baggage handlers test the exoskeleton.

Over 15,000 students in disadvantaged areas to receive free school books

  Over 15,000 students in disadvantaged areas to receive free school books More than 15,000 primary pupils in disadvantaged areas are to get free school books in a new initiative. A new grant, which is being paid to 102 schools, will bring the total to €85 available for each pupil - an increase of €64 in support under the existing books grant scheme. The 15,000 pupils involved represent about 3pc of the primary school population. Education Minister Joe McHugh announced the new €1m pilot scheme today.“The aim is to provide school books for these children and their families and we hope to build on this,” the minister said.

Meanwhile, Panasonic touted its own "support robot" exoskeletons that will be used by support crews to tote weights and other heavy equipment for competitors at the coming Paralympics in Tokyo.

Playing at code

My Creativity Box showed off a "Mochi" game that playfully takes children's eyes off screens while teaching them software coding skills.

Mochi kits let children create a robotic ride for a plush toy bear and command it according to stories in a book.

Subject themes include shapes, colors, animals and numbers.

"My three-year-old daughter and I came up with the idea," said Creativity Box technology chief Mihran Vardanyan.

"It's a screenless experience, so kids are not getting addicted to screens, plus they learn about coding and other useful subjects."

€1m to buy free school books for 15,000 pupils

  €1m to buy free school books for 15,000 pupils More than 15,000 primary pupils in the most disadvantaged areas are to get free school books in a new €1m initiative. A grant, which is being paid to 102 schools, will bring to €85 the amount available for each pupil, an increase of €64 on the subsidy paid under the existing Department of Education books grant scheme for pupils in schools serving disadvantaged communities. The 15,000 pupils set to benefit from the initiative represent about 3pc of the primary school population. Announcing what he described as a pilot scheme, Education Minister Joe McHugh said the aim was "to provide school books for these children and their families, and we hope to build on this".

'Frozen' software smarts

Aspiring software savants of any age were invited to "enter the magic coding kingdom" with an online learning scheme created in partnership with Disney.

The Disney Codeillusion program freshly launched in the US uses an array of popular Disney film characters to make learning how to write computer code more entertaining.

"For example, with 'Frozen' you can learn how to create Elsa's snow magic," Life is Tech USA chief executive Satoshi Miyagawa said while demonstrating the teaching tool.

"For 'Zootopia,' you create a website to recruit new police officers."

The online courses were created with school age children in mind, but partner Life is Tech caught on that lots of adults are interested in code and want a fun way to learn the skills.

"We wanted to build a bridge from kids coding to adult coding, and keep learners motivated," Miyagawa said of the program, which is priced at $1,900.

- 'Sound of the future' -

Oscar winning composer Giorgio Moroder debuted a piece created in a collaboration with FPT Industrial to serve as a sound for silent vehicles, such as electric cars, that are replacing noisy combustion engines.

"And now you know the engine is working," Moroder exclaimed after a crowd heard his auto-engine composition for the first time.
