The Variable Vector Countermeasure Suit (V2Suit) is a specialized spacesuit designed to keep astronauts healthy during long-duration space exploration missions and help stabilize them while they work in microgravity. The initial V2Suit prototype will integrate gyroscopes and accelerometers to track the position and orientation of body segments and use flywheels to provide a "viscous resistance" during movements to replicate the sensation of gravity during movements in 0-G.More »
