The journalist Carolin Conrady follows the symbiosis of man and machine. In Japan, she tries out the latest developments in the field of exoskeletons and describes how it feels to move in them. In Kyoto, she tests the prototype of the so-called "Ninja". The support suit impresses with its potential abilities, but its development is still in its infancy – which is clearly noticeable when worn. When visiting a technology company, Conrady meets the manufacturers of other so called Cobots. She tests cobots, which are already used today on selected construction sites and in logistics.
