Hory clap!

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

RockBolt - 2007-11-21
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...
Stog - 2007-11-21

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

We already have space marines and you don't.
Sorry guys, but America wins.

"I'm ready, man, check it out. I am the ultimate badass! State of the badass art! You do NOT wanna fuck with me. Check it out! Hey Ripley, don't worry. Me and my squad of ultimate badasses will protect you! Check it out! Independently targeting particle beam phalanx. Vwap! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks..."

Adramelech - 2007-11-21
You mean like our future mutated cave children after the Robot War, right?

sheikurbouti - 2007-11-21
If said children survived this hypothetical Robot War... then yes.

TinManic - 2007-11-21
omg! lets be meek and feeble in case the future laughs as we laugh at old videos of people inventing the stuff we use today!

this is awesome.

afp3683 - 2008-01-18
it really makes you think.

APE_GOD - 2010-01-21
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.

What pride.

Billie_Joe_Buttfuck - 2010-09-24
assuming they survived the robot war, our children would laugh at our weakness.

Will you please shut up now

Billy Buttsex - 2007-11-23
Oh, like girls go around talking about robotic exoskeletons

TrafficCone - 2007-12-12
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!

I'm gonna just interpret this as its a good day to be a man, as in, homo sapiens. cos yeah, you're right.

Signing bonus: ,000
Operator salary: ,000
Exoskeleton: ,000,000

are combat equivalent to:

IED: (or fair market value)

Therefore, I do not think we win, unless we stop fighting stupidly.
Adramelech - 2007-11-21
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.

Hooker - 2007-11-22
If only we could slash that signing bonus and operator salary.

baleen - 2007-11-22

maybe you could put IED SENSORS ON IT. and stuff!

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.
Blank_Slate - 2007-11-21
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?


Green - 2007-11-22
Tethered exoskeletons...Will Japan be the first to fill these things with embryonic fluid or can we beat them at their own game?!?!

FABIO2 - 2008-02-26
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.

Rape Van Winkle - 2009-01-20
Duracell runs the free world!

"And eventually they will even be autonomous." Oh shit.
fluffy - 2008-01-20
Oh, also, +5 for "prancing and dancing"

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2007-11-21
Can you masturbate with this thing on?
EvilHomer - 2007-11-21
Like you've never masturbated before!

fap fap fap fap OH GOD TOO STRONG

Adramelech - 2007-11-21
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.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2009-08-11
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.

boner - 2007-11-21
It goes up stairs and ramps, and keeps you from falling down in the shower. Ed McMahon will be selling these on TV soon.
afp3683 - 2008-01-18
You can go anywhere in it. Even the Grand Canyon.

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.

its like tourette syndrome except for having a neurological disorder you're just a fucking moron.

Caminante Nocturno - 2007-11-22
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.
Scynne - 2007-11-22
I have a strong desire to own one of those.
Jeff Fries - 2007-11-22

this exoskeleton is interested in taking care of its body and playing sports

...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.

Cheese - 2007-11-22
Why can't he run 60 mph?

Speed limit's 55.
hur hur hur

When he said "taking on a ramp" I thought he said "Taking on Iran". Go figure.

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
oogaBooga - 2008-05-27
Strap some moon shoes on it and youre good to go

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-05-28
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.

Oh hell yes. I would join the army if I got one of these.
