Exoskeleton

Okay this is whickedly cool.

http://tech.msn.com/products/article...&GT1=40000

I had heard some early rumblings about this a year or so ago, but damn man, awesome. Not exactly super powered exoskeleton...but I noticed the article mentioned up to 10 fold increase in power. Looks like an early step toward honest to goodness industrial exoskeletons (and for medical disabled people). Plus...some more work, longer battery life...and a bitch load of armor...can you say walking light armored vehicle (or for fans of RPGs, video games and anime...power armor)?
