Dec. 17, 2023
Of the roughly 300 new products shared with New Equipment Digest readers this year, these were the most popular.

From not-at-all creepy human-like robots to Aliens-inspired exoskeletons to a really nice pair of workboots, New Equipment Digest readers responded to a wide variety of new products in 2023.

Manufacturing is a diverse industry, so it's not terribly surprising that the most popular products are all over the place. Top spots went to the sci-fi-themed products meant to augment or even replace human involvement in strenuous tasks, products that likely gained attention by being cool and addressing the severe difficulties so many companies are having in finding qualified workers in today's tight job market.
