I don't know how a primitive exoskeleton is more frightening than an M1A2 Abrams, MLRS, B-2 Spirit, AH-64D, or a thermonuclear weapon. It's just a different application of technology to lead to the same result.

If anything, it would allow soldiers to come closer to dangerous situations, and will actually re humanize combat that is now typically fought at ranges of several kilometers.

I`ve seen similar applications before. Pretty neat actually. I think the end result is to develop a mech warrior :)

Considering how much more equipment and supplies soldiers of today have compared to just 50 years ago, even if the exo-suit can`t be used to fight, it would do wonders for speeding up deployment and doing supply runs.

This has potential to be a great asset to the civilian world as well.

Safer heavy lifting, legs for the crippled, et cetera.

They had a program on TV for this. I did not find it as impressive as the guy who made the bear suit.

I find this much more impressive. However A mix of the both without the teathers that the one linked requires to power the suit would be a lot better. haha.

Mecha is comming someday. =) maybe in my lifetime.
