XOS: Real Life 'Iron Man' Suit


Posted April 14, 2008 - By bleahy

Iron Man is definitely going to be a huge hit, but where do we stand on a powered exoskeleton in the real world? Researchers at Raytheon Sarcos are developing the XOS Exoskeleton that could create a real world Iron Man.

This exoskeleton works by sensing the wearer's desired movement and mimicking the action, like a shadow. It requires a power source, but can make lifting 200 pounds feel like it's only 10.

The benefits of a fully functional exoskeleton would be incredibly numerous with applications in the military, rescue work, construction, and more.

Hit the break for an interview with Marvel as well as Steve Jacobsen, the creator of the XOS.
