Oh man, do I want one of those. How awsome would it be to deploy a squad of armour-plated, super strong soldiers against an enemy several times their number? and you could give them awsome weapons like small miniguns and rockets and stuff.

Subscribe to Popular Science and Popular Mechanics.  I read about the robot exoskeleton in 2003.

I'm guessing time travel was involved there (also tomorrow technology!).

I can't watch the blasted video though >:( I am severely annoyed at the internets.

No, time travel is yesterday's technology today.

...And tomorrow.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

That is awesome!
I wonder if it could also be used to help disabled people walk and move normally again. That would make it even more awesome.

The Vulcan science council has concluded that time travel is impossible.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Doctor who (and before the death of his species, all of them too) disagrees!

Yeah, but Doctor Who isn't real  :P

Perhaps this hastilly constructed demotivator will clear the issue up:



Ahem, anyway, those exoskeletons are indeed cool. Although I wonder if they could also do things like increase running speed and/or jump hieght as well as simply the weight tha can be carried.

all the video does is brag about the suit's strength... but it seems to have a slow reaction time..
