The XOS 2 is a military robotic exoskeleton designed to help soldiers carry heavy loads or assist in working on heavy machinery. It can break boards with a fairly tame-looking push. It lifts big weights. It makes you stronger. Here’s a blurb from SlashGear:
The new model, the XOS 2, utilizes high-pressure hydraulics. The result is a suit that allows the user therein to lift upwards of 200 pounds, several hundred times without growing tired.
So what better way to show this off than to have Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., give us a demonstration? Wait, what? They didn’t get RDJ? Well who did they get? The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent guy? That’s lame. They missed a great marketing opportunity here. Oh well, I still want one. Oh, and a Blu-Ray player too.
