HULC Exoskeleton Successfully Endures Latest Round of Army Testing
With the technology, which resembles ordinary leg braces, soldiers can effortlessly bear 200 pounds and execute "deep squats, crawls and upper-body lifting with minimal human exertion." The technology relies on a "hydraulic-actuated anthropomorphic exoskeleton" to anticipate and brace the movements of the heavily laden 6 Million Dollar Forrest Gump.
The outfit apparently still requires extensive testing, but it also appears to be effective without being overly cumbersome. Lockheed's demonstration provides a glimpse into the tech's future possibilities, but be prepared for an insufferably long video -- featuring an incessant dose of rocking '80s guitar cheese -- after the break.
