Nasa came to us with the need to implement a lightweight high energy absorbing bumper in an upcoming .ai robot. After a year of lab testing numerous materials from a range of manufacturers, our proprietary FluidX material was finally selected to protect the NASA Astrobee’s highly sensitive equipment.

We made special injection molded components in the same fashion as our elite series insoles which fit into pre existing parts of the Astrobee.

We are proud to have manufactured the protective energy absorbing bumpers on each corner of the Astrobees
