This is pretty cool...I heard something about this I think too?

In any case, this could (eventually) have military apps...Just scale the power, and it will allow a person who can normally only lift maybe 110LBs, to be able to lift perhaps 200+...Like a power suit neh?

Uh ... so what does this have to do with Godzilla? Why should he look out? Because he's Japanese?

There was a book by Sci-Fi author Bruce Sterling caled "A Good Old-Fashioned Future" where a soldier wears a type of body-mech suit that allows him to punch trough brick walls, leap tall buildings, shoot lightning bolts, and toss vehicles around like toys. Sure, it's possible to equip soldiers with a suit like this, but the cost will have to remain low, the battery life will have to be many times better than your average video iPod or gaming laptop (better by days or weeks), and it will have to protect every square inch of the soldier. It would be cool and would probablly put an end to all manned armed confilcts solely because of the "Wow, we don't stand a chance aginst that!" factor.

As for Godzilla; yes because he's Japanese, and because of that Mecha-Godzilla he fought, and that giant robotic looking space man he fought (or was that something from that stupid Power rangers show???.

Regardless, it's always the cool looking futuristic stuff that rolls out of Japan.

Oh my, I would like to see a video of this suit in action. I'm curious as to just how mobile it really is, whether or not the joints can bend and swivel like those of the human body. This is incredibly interesting to me.
