    "Get away from her you B**ch"

    I`m not sure I understand the point of a non-robotic exo-skeleton suit...it does nothing to enhance the person at all and in fact makes them slower, heavier and less dexterous.

    call me when they have motorized versions of this!

    Combine Cyberdine, Raytheon, and Skeletonics, then I`ll start cheering on the exo-skeleton suit.

    Imagine an infinity of these... each one hooked up to a larger one. As in, you inside a suit, inside a suit, inside a suit, inside a suit, etc.

    Just need some way of powering it!

    This contraption is all based on using pantographs, no hydraulics, pneumatics, or electric motors.

    You couldn`t lift anymore than normal with it, actually because of the leverage involved the amount of lift would be less than normal.

    It`s not very practical except maybe as a skeleton for parade characters. There are far better exoskeletons being produced right now that can lift heavy objects and others that assist the users mobility.

    Yes, but now that it`s been done, people will be improving on it. Combine this concept with the robotic dog stuff, and I give it less than 50 years before we seen robotic suits.

    Lillim: Perhaps less than that, There has been good progress made in bio-mechanics and bio-robotics lately. But this thing is not "new" it`s old.
