Its amazing how technology can achieve more than the expected and walk in big steps. I remember when I was a kid me and friends are used to watch movies and discuss how we never were able to see those things on real life, as example when i started using computers the avaliable RAM memory was 48 Kb see now what happens when you buy a new computer.

Take a look on this http://www.engadget.com/2008/04/11/popular-science-blows-out-the-sarcos-xos-exoskeleton/ (watch the video) Its amazing but in some years maybe we will watch wars like they are in the movies or games. I hope that wars can be performed using only machinery in the future This way we will be able to save some souls from precocious death.

P.S. For those that dont speak "foreign" Sorry for bad english here.

exoskelelol, not a chance for mechas. watch big dog and weep, full time robots will kick ass sooner than you think. just imagine a minigun on top of it. and maybe a voice like the turrets in portal have.

Only thing i can state is that robotics is reaching (or reached) a completely new level.

This "dog" remembers me Star Wars :p
