XOS2 Suit from Raytheon - The First Step Toward a REAL Iron Man

OK, every once in a while I just have to geek out on something, and you, dear readers are along for the ride...
This is one of those moments. I stumbled across this video from Raytheon showing a prototype "exoskeleton" type device that allows the human wearing it to lift amazing weights, break things, and move said weights without tiring. This truly the beginning of an Iron Man type of device. Well, not exactly the beginning as this is the XOS 2 which is the next step up from the first prototype dubbed XOS 1.
The really cool part, at least for me, is the idea that the device could be deployed in 5 years. That's pretty cool. But... enough of the lead in. Check out the video:
