Robot? Cyborg? Soldier?

This video demonstrates a surprisingly advanced exoskeleton being developed for soldiers (marines don’t need it). It is like something from a dark scifi novel — something an ‘evil empire’ would use. Such a device would also eliminate all arguments for keeping women off the front lines of battle since physical strength would no longer be an issue. In spite of the development of this Terminator suit for war, I can think of a lot of very productive civilian uses for this exoskeleton. After all, if we can fly like birds with the help of our machines why can’t we lift things like ants?
