The Sarcos Exoskeleton By Raytheon Gets Upgraded

In less than a decade the Iron Man exoskeleton may be added to the ever-growing list of former science fiction fantasies that become reality.

Not long ago I posted about the HULC by Lockheed Martin and the REX by REX bionics. Today you can check out the newest version of the Sarcos exoskeleton by Raytheon.

Version XOS 2 of the Sarcos offers a lighter and stronger robotic suit that uses 50 percent less electric power while keeping the previous capabilities. It is expected to be deployed within 5 to 8 years.

So, if the suit becomes reality, then, could Iron Man become reality one day too?
