    This is so fascinating- Will they be developing these for the military? Just wondering how it could play into the impact space.

      In the article there's a link to their indegogo going on now: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/prosthesis-the-anti-robot
      Since the project is being crowdfunded, I would venture to say this is a startup.

      I did a quick google search and found that exoskeletons for military use are being developed, but they're more like body suits rather than mech warriors.

      I'm not sure how this will play into the impact space, but since google just bought the robot company, Boston Dynamics, I'm sure we'll see a lot more of this kind of robot news coming to the surface.

        Fascinating. I imagine they could help fields like architecture/design. Smaller-scale health robotic projects are doing great things for prosthetics.
