Starcraft Marines are coming to Real Life!

December 5, 2007 at 8:43 am (Oddly Intriguing, Tech Geekery)

Sarcos, a Utah robotics company, has working 6 years on this particular product: Suits for soldiers that will provide extra strength, endurance, and protection. Lifting weights becomes easy, and it’s so agile, you can stand on one foot, or gently toss a ball with a friend. I highly recommend watching the CNN video report on it!

    The suit is very cool, but as with all mobile robotics applications, the problem is power. They were trying to kind of keep it off screen, but that umbilical was pretty big, and I didn’t see what was powering it, but I assume it was large.
