Iron Man Suit Anyone?

Given the state of robotics in today’s world, it is not really hugely surprising that Raytheon (one of the world’s most innovative and largest defence companies) has developed a wearable robotics suit that effectively turns the wearer into a version of Iron Man.

Want to lift 200lb? No problem, the suit boosts the wearers power by a factor of 17, and as a result not only creates super soldiers, but super logistics personnel who can complete tasks faster and more effectively.

And a nifty little demonstration video as well, in which they also let us know that for now, these beasties use so much energy, that they need to be tethered. I’m actually a bit relieved to be frank.
