    New Iron Man Exoskeleton Robotic Suit Revealed

    newslite



    Boffins have revealed the latest version of an Iron Man-esque exoskeleton robotic suit which gives a wearer superhuman powers.

    The Exoskeleton XOS2 is said to be lighter, faster and stronger than its predecessor while at the same time using only half the energy.

    Developed for the U.S. Army the wearable robot is built from a combination of structures, sensors, actuators and controllers, and it is powered by high pressure hydraulics.

    Makers say it allows a wearer to easily lift 200lbs hundreds of times without tiring and repeatedly punch through three inches of wood… so it they're wearing it we are not going to argue with them.

    Rest at the above link.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    It's a pity they don't show it moving. I saw an exosuit a long time ago but it was soooo slow.

    I've seen these things operate. Fascinating! They only have a couple of short comings, they are limited to about an eight foot radius of movement (length of the power umbilical cord) from the required 1 ton power module (try and get an infantryman to haul that around in the field). As for the second drawback, they short out in the rain or snow and I won't even mention swamps... Combat ready? they're not even close.
