Shame they had to make an example of Pvt. Pyle at the start of the clip.
Yes, look at Steve Emro's forehead. his big bald sweaty forehead. LOOK

Yes, you can pick up ammo boxes, very nice. Now where is the 5 on 1 melee combat?

Does it handel like Armored Core? 'Cause i'm pretty good at that game, I could have a career in this...

I can't wait to see a combat-ready version of this suit.

Future generations will laugh at our hubris.
If said children survived this hypothetical Robot War... then yes.
it really makes you think.
Yes. Just like we laugh at the hubris of the metallurgists of the iron age.
What pride to think they could make something stronger than copper.
assuming they survived the robot war, our children would laugh at our weakness.
|Maggot Brain - 2007-11-21 |
Oh shit. It can go up stair!

THANK YOU SCIENCE.
It's a good day to be a man. I am happy.
"it's a good day to be a man"
Will you please shut up now
Oh, like girls go around talking about robotic exoskeletons
Yeah, we do. In fact, I make my living writing about robots, idiot.
Since I can't have robotic limbs of my own (yet), I'm buying one of these, instead.
It's a great day to be a woman!
|zatojones - 2007-11-21 |
Space. Fucking. Marines. Awesome.
|Camonk - 2007-11-21 |
Yes, awesome. Finally. It is about time science got its shit together. I've been hearing a lot about science and global warming, science and medicine, science and outer space. It's about time science got the fuck back to making awesome machines. Flying cars now and robot butlers. Now, please.

Signing bonus: ,000
Operator salary: ,000
are combat equivalent to:
IED: (or fair market value)
Therefore, I do not think we win, unless we stop fighting stupidly.
It's true that a lot of this is R&D fluff until they make an exoskeleton that is immune to Shot In The Head, but it's fun to look at.
And goddamn can that thing move boxes.
maybe you could put IED SENSORS ON IT. and stuff!

yes prostitute, let's make it so it smells gunpowder.

Why'd they tether him? Would the suit try to run away with the guy trapped inside?
Also there's a new Army career...exosuit technician.
Unfortunately, they're not "tethers", they're power cords. The exoskeleton needs a ton power in order to operate.
I'm really disappointed with the science of exoskeletons since no one ever seems bother with coming up with a decent mobile battery system to power these things.
I mean, if you were going to make power armor, shouldn't you focus on the power aspect first and then build your exoskeleton around that power system?
Anyways, FIVES STARS FOR HOT SEXY EXOSKELETON ACTION!!!!
I'm disappointed with the progress of battery power in general. If you take a look at all the technological leaps in the past 50 or so years, the advancement of batteries is pretty pathetic.
|fluffy - 2007-11-21 |
"And eventually they will even be autonomous." Oh shit.
Oh, also, +5 for "prancing and dancing"
|Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2007-11-21 |
Can you masturbate with this thing on?
God I hope the first civilian batch has defects and we get reports of construction workers flinging bags of cement 30 feet in the air or elderly women pulling the rails off of staircases.

Portal of Evil News is going to be fucking hilarious for our great-grandchildren, but they'll all be taking it too much for granted to laugh as hard as we would.
The future of the "Slipping on a Banana Peel" gag is bright though. There's that to hope for.

It goes up stairs and ramps, and keeps you from falling down in the shower. Ed McMahon will be selling these on TV soon.
|sannyasin - 2007-11-21 |
I poo-pooed the DARPA funded research into this but now seeing it in action I think that the powered armor in Fallout might actually become a reality someday. If not that then perhaps I won't ever have to worry about being wheelchair bound or physically limited in my old age.
|RandomFerret - 2007-11-21 |
Maybe it's just the power of suggestion from the title of this video, but the announcer really sounds like Stan Lee.
Welcome, true believers!

One step closer to making Galaxy Fraulein Yuna a reality. Or at least Sky Girls.
|dead_cat - 2007-11-22 |
Oh man, when these things hit the civilian market, there's gonna be so many self-described "superheroes" out there attempting to dish out vigilante justice and failing miserably.
The future is going to be hilarious.

I have a strong desire to own one of those.

...Steve Emero listened while the Terminator laid it all down: Skynet, Judgment Day, the history of things to come. It's not everyday you hear that you're responsible for 3 billion deaths. He took it pretty well.

Why can't he run 60 mph?
Speed limit's 55.

For the love of God please do not make an autonomous killbot. PLEASE.
|FABIO2 - 2008-02-26 |
I had a friend in the national guard whose unit got to play around with a couple of close combat Redman training suits. They spent most of the time goofing around where everyone would smash batons and other objects onto them which they would shrug off as they walked around spouting lines from Robocop. It almost made me want to enlist.
|dementomstie - 2008-04-10 |
So is it showing things that humans can't do in the demos? Because I can walk up stairs and ramps. OH GOD, I'M NOT HUMAN!
|bizzaro - 2008-05-15 |
can you jump super fucking high? because if you cant jump suiper fucking high, that thing is worthless
j lzrd / swift idiot
HeeeeeEEEEEYYYYY~!! Not regular moon-shoes though, super-hydraulic moonshoes, with heavy-ass gyroscopics for midair stability!
It's the missing link between simple strap on exoskeletons that walk like the P-5000 Powerloader in Aliens, and full-blown, fully contained, jump-jet boosted supersuits like those swarming, battlemech-killing Elemental soldiers on the Clan side in Battletech.
|ebola - 2008-08-10 |
Oh hell yes. I would join the army if I got one of these.
