Aliens Style Power Loader Suits from Panasonic

If you’ve ever wished that you could have an exoskeleton that would let you crush your enemies just like Ripley in the classic science fiction movie Aliens, then Panasonic has your back. The company’s robotic division Activelink, is planning to introduce two powered exoskeleton suits.

Work on a large version that can carry up to 220 pounds has been underway for several years, but now Activelink is focused on a smaller version called the Power Loader Lite, which can handle about 120 pounds.

Activelink plans to develop a special version of the Power Loader for use in space, and even a waterproof version for use in deep sea exploration.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
