A working human exoskeleton - I want one - will be interesting to see how this thing progresses. Fuck this world is changing fast. And once nanotechnology kicks in things will get really weird then - we are going to be living in a science fiction novel sooner than we think (I guess we are already living in some).


some funny comments there, loved this one "It's only a machine humans invented to beat Chuck Norris in arm wrestling ;D"

The military will have this, you cannot engage in asymmetric warfare if they are commonly available.

I don't want to buy one, I just want to be given it :D

If 1 soldier can now do the work of 20 then it might be worth it. Especially if he can do the damage of 20.

Perhaps... But they will still have to find some kind of portable power source powerful and light enough to power it which will take quite a lot of engineering... And i wouldnt really like to carry a small powerplant on my back in an environment with shrapnel and bullets flying around.

And also pretty damn explosive if you want them to be as light as possible (ie tanks of pure hydrogen instead of methanol).
