    Once they can get them completely armor covered it'll be amazing.

    I love it. Anything that keeps my kids safer while making 'em even more lethal is outstanding.

    can't wait to see these in military use. The battle suit looks like it could be modified to look like the Master Cheif armor.

    I also want these to become power loaders like in Aliens...

    Oh, who cares. It doesn't even transform! Seriously, that's interesting. Curious to see how it progresses. I see lots of potential, and lots of potential problems.

    Now they need to have onboard power, fuel, and control. And armor. Or barring that, yellow and danger stripes. :D 

    But it's pretty awesome for a Mk 1.

    Haha, you're right.


    In 30 years, we'll be like "Hey, remember when they first invented those exo-suits? Those old-fashioned ones?"

    Thats cool, reminds me of (on a smaller scale of course) Ripley's cargo loading suit in Aliens.

    Awesomesauce!

    Spartans? Yeah! No wait, FUCK yeah!


    These look really promising. I like the idea of a robot/human tag team that can fuction as one super soldier, then separate and work as two individuals! The armoured prototypes look awesome aswell, totally futuristic and whatnot!

    Super Sentai Gattai?

    The thing must cost a bomb though. I wonder if they can afford to mass outfit soldiers with that...
