Skeletonics Exoskeleton

by Mark R

We have reported on a lot of interesting Power Loader suits before, you know, like the type that were used in Aliens. I still can’t figure out how they did that effect without computer generated effects.

I believe that the reason for creating exo-suits is so that you can lift really heavy objects, but the Skeletonics exoskeleton just seems to be made so you can walk around in an exo-suit. I mean, who wouldn’t want that?

I definitely think that as far as speed goes, this Skeletonics exoskeleton is for you. You can watch the video after the jump if you want to see a man-robot run. Man, I hope he doesn’t trip.

This Skeletonics exoskeleton is also good if you want to flick an empty soda can. There seems to be this option of launching some sort of rocket as well. Clearly, this man was inspired by Aliens, because I remember the Power Loader had a weapon. Actually, it was a blowtorch, and I couldn’t figure out why a Power Loader would have a blowtorch on it.

Well, I see another difference between this apparatus and the Power Loader from Aliens, this one is white. Maybe this is how they did that effect in Aliens 25 years ago.

I think the suit was (maybe) inspired by Ghost in the shell (or Appleseed) since the design of main/slave arms is like the “GSDF Combat Suit Type 303”

either way, its pretty cool what the team have done.
