Exoskeleton: A Human Amplifying Machine, Turns Humans Into Terminators

This video shows an experimental robotic exoskeleton as it turns soldiers into super-soldiers and also works independently as a robot.

Humans aren't the quickest creatures on Earth, and most of us are limited in the amount of weight that we can pick up and carry. These weaknesses can be fatal on the battlefield, and that's why the (DARPA) is investing $50 million to develop an exoskeleton suit for ground troops. This wearable robotic system could give soldiers the ability to run faster, carry heavier weapons and leap over large obstacles.

These exoskeletal systems are expected to give soldiers amplified strength and speed, and will also have built-in computers to aid soldiers in navigating foreign territories.
