UPSポスター 最終 アウトライン-- - 20151130.pdf
Weird unpowered exo (unpowered suit or UPS) using foot air pump to directly manipulate a compressing gel muscle actuator. If you had a low pressure pneumatic accumulator to collect foot pump power and some valving this might be interesting. I wonder if TALOS integrates something like this?

Wave Energy :: ALBATERN :: WaveNET
Interesting wave energy power generator design, using linkable modules. Similar to pelamis, but all the hydraulic piston stuff is done underwater it seems.

INNOPHYS - 株式会社イノフィス
Interesting new exoskeleton (in back support and back+arm support version) that uses pneumatic actuators and a small refillable compressed air tank. Intended for use where compressed air is available (like hospitals, warehouses, etc). There's some sort of weird mouth suction operated control (optional?) as well.

Technische Universität Wien : Eine Betonkuppel zum Aufblasen
Interesting, but I'm not seeing how this is substantially superior to traditional inflated form shotcrete concrete domes though.

Saving Gas: Pneumatic Hybrid Engine Is Much Cheaper Than Electric Hybrids And Almost As Economical
Uh, so this is a turbocharged 2 cylinder engine that stores air (turbocharger boost wastegate overflow, external mechanically linked compressor/supercharger, or some combo?), for later injection into the engine, with implied zero combustion motor modes (simple air expander operation in the cylinder). Supposed to be comparatively low cost, provided the air input valve is software controlled...
