    Robotic Exoskeleton

    Not a new video, but I had never seen it before. This is one of the more advanced Robotic Exoskeletons I have seen in action, really shows what our technology is becoming capable of.

    Haha.

    This is so cool. I am so happy these developments are happening right before my eyes in my lifetime.

    Yeah, me to, I wish I was in my twenties again so I could see all the new robotic technologies in the next 50 years.

    This has been a ongoing project with DARPA.

    Re: Robotic Exoskeleton

    There was a pretty cool article about this in popular science I think. I got a copy of the article in my mailbox at school, and had my students write about it. One fear they expressed was that if someone got hold of one of these things, They would be able to inflict quite a bit of damage before the were stopped. Especially since there are models being developed for the disabled.

    Get grandpa fitted for one...when he goes to sleep put on the body armor and go to town.
