'Power Loader' suit from Activelink

Inspired by the fictional hydraulic exoskeleton machine famously piloted by Sigourney Weaver in the classic movie Aliens, now comes this Power loader suit by engineers from Activelink, a Kyoto-based subsidiary of Panasonic.

Built on an aluminum-alloy frame and weighs 230 kilograms (500 lbs). Described as a 'dual-arm power amplification robot,' the exoskeleton suit is currently equipped with 18 electromagnetic motors that enable the wearer to lift 100 kilograms (220 lbs) without breaking a sweat.

Still in the development phase, Activelink hopes to see a marketable version arrive in the markets by the year 2015.
