Ironman Joins the Marines

Normally I write about the Navy on this site, but since the Marines are a sister organization and since this kind of technology is also being pursued by the Navy, I thought you might find it of interest.

You may remember a blog I wrote a few months ago talking about the Navy’s work on a robotic suit or exoskeleton called TALOS.  Well the Marines are getting ready to test their own exoskeleton technology known as Guardian XO and it’s described in a new article.  Basically it lets whoever straps on the robotics lift up to 200 pounds and work for hours without fatigue or injury.  You can check out this technology via a video in the article and also a slightly longer video provided by Guardian XO’s manufacturer, Sarcos.
