|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.
