We are a step closer to Aliens, my friends.

These are hydraulically powered leg braces, designed for military use.

DARPA has sunk some money into developing assistive exoskeletons. Pictured here is Bleex 1 (Berkeley Lower Extremity Exoskeleton) developed at UC Berkeley.

We're only a short jump away from that glorious day when our robot-suited supervixens will do battle with giant slimy monsters with acid for blood and penises for heads.
