Life imitates art? Sci-fi meets reality.

While perusing Slashdot I ran across a link to this article which details a powered exoskeleton that a person can “wear.”

Robert Heinlein proposed such an idea in his book Starship Troopers (much better than the movie).

The group at Berkeley has gotten the suit to the point where the wearer can carry a 70 lb. payload, but it only feels like 5 lbs. Nice.
