I was flipping through my newest issue of Wizard Magazine this morning before work and as I was reading about the upcoming Iron Man film a small sidebar article caught my attention.

Sarcos, a Utah-based company (that was recently purchased by military-defense contractor Raytheon) is producing a powered exoskeleton for military applications that made me first think, “Cool! Just like the powered armor in all the military sci-fi books!”

Then I saw the video, and while I still think it is cool, I get a little bit of a Cyberdyne Systems/Skynet vibe. Besides battling aliens in space, I bet the non-military applications for this thing will be awesome as well.

Check out the video.
