One Step Closer to Iron Man, I Mean SCVs

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UpxsrlLbpU

Behold the Raytheon XOS 2 exoskeleton, the latest advancement in power suit technology. How cool is it? Cool enough that the company thought it wise to bring in Iron Man actor Clark Gregg (of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the film) to comment on how awesome the suit is.

Now, they obviously want to play it up like it’s an Iron Man suit prototype, but with it’s practical application of “lifting heavy things” and its combat application of “lightening a soldier’s load,” we’re still a far cry from Stark Industries here. Rather, a much more accurate comparison would be to a Starcraft SCV, a unit that uses a man in a power suit to life heavy things like rocks and barrels of gas. So yes, it’s a cool tech advancement, but just not as cool as they want it to be. Watch the video above.
