Now, I think all or at least most of us have heard of the movie The Terminator (1984) with Arnold Schwarzenegger. That was exactly what I thought of when I saw this CNN video on a Robotic Exoskeleton the Army is using. Yes, that’s exactly what I said, robotic exoskeleton. It allows a person, mainly soldiers to step into the robotic structure and operate it. It enables average men to lift five-hundred pounds of weight and load missiles onto planes without breaking a sweat. It doesn’t hinder their ability to maneuver; the person operating the machine can still run and jump. However, swimming may be out of the picture right now.
The biotech engineers are currently working on a way to make this robot free-moving. This way, the soldier would be able to leave the robot and it could continue without someone to direct it. This would be a great advancement for the US Military. However, as with all things, we should proceed with care.
