Modern power armor. Some of the production covered versions even look a little Space Marine-ish. The desert camo one looks Cadian though.

How cool is that? I'm really curious to see how they're going to work out the battery issues though.

I saw this video the other day, pretty sweet. Although going from their prototype to that Robocop-looking suit is quite a jump.

...... Omg.


Creepy and awesome at the same time. Imagine if the bare exoskeleton could be fabricated cheaply enough to be used in say, warehouses and other freight handling facilities.

That idea has been worked on before. But IIRC accidents lead to user injuries, and research stopped. It looked a lot like the one in this video, but bulkier.
