Robot Suit Going Into Production For $4,200 - Geekologie
No! Evil robot overlords!
Happy place, happy place, happy place...
Made by a company called Cyberdyne no less! What could possibly go wrong??
So you can have more strength and more ability to do stuff ... at the price of looking stupid.
Or you could hold incredibly heavy objects - and still break your wrists.
Will be nice for driving or drive through.
People in your way, just get out , pick up their car and politely THROW it to the side
Try playing Wii Sports with that on.
At least now those super-lazy fat people who use those mobile wheelchairs/scooters instead of actually WALKING will take up less room.
I remembered seeing something like this on a TV show. DARPA was very interested in it, but they also showed how something like an exosuit could be used in warehouses and the like.
Be careful buying the Microsoft version.
I don't like the colour much. Tell you what. Throw a little hot rod red in there.
Yeah, warehouses. I'm sure that was the plan...
Holy crap! I want that! And I'm a warehouse worker too!
Once the exo suit is mass produced...
Yeah, they were moving "sample objects" that were shaped just like ammo cases that were full of "weight" and the guy in the suit was picking them up and putting them at chest height without any strain. Granted he had a forearm thick set of cables running to his back for power supply.
could you dunk with that?
Your point being...?
Interesting technology though I fear it will be woefully misused. Batman Beyond style psychopath in heavy armor with the strength of 10 average men? Could do a shitload more damage than the average deranged psycho gunman
LOL looks shopped
Yeah, until the battery runs down. I don't think breaking into the local Poundland and stocking up on cheapo AAs will get it running again.
Well if they figure a way to get high caliber bullet proof armor over the user and the exoskeleton while still being maneuverable to cause lethal amounts of damage then I don't see how they will have problem fitting another 5-10 batteries in the design.
