Now if someone wearing the suit in this article could pick up and remove the “statue” in the previous article – then we might have something.

I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.

Hmmmm….Helping paraplegics and others regain freedom of motion is a good thing….but the company name “Cyberdyne” gives me the creeps. And that the military is interested. Terminator, anyone?

This was featured on the history channel sometime back I believe…

“The suit functions by responding to the body’s nerve signals, which are fed into the suit’s computer and converted electronically. When the brain sends a command to move a particular part of the body, the corresponding part of the suit reacts”
Wow. I wonder how they managed to accomplish that.

I don’t see this as something new. This is power equipment. It’s just shrinking down power equipment to roughly skin-tight dimensions. Ya know, kinda like a eco-car. ;)

Do the Time Machines still function normally if the living human tissue is inside the mechanical parts rather than outside?

I’m sure the blue lighting is purely functional, and not just for looks.

Two thoughts: First, I bet that this suit doesn’t rend its wearer limb from limb! One more reason for me to think the entire Spartan project was just completely misguided. Second, next project: Morph Ball.
(Look, I don’t know from Terminator. Video game references are the best I can do.)
