    looks like the stuff of movies is actually coming to real life. (this reminds me of Aliens and Matrix: Reloaded (or was it the last one, can't remember))

    pretty neat technology, but the military applications/implications are kinda scary.

    better make sure that code has no bugs

    since a sign error could make the hydraulics rip your arm off!

    This was done at my school (the University of Utah). Pretty cool stuff. I'm going to get a special certificate in Mechatronics and I look forward to seeing things like this more in depth.

    I saw Iron Man, so I know that the greatest challenge in getting a robotic suit to work is making sure your cute robot arm doesn't spray you with a fire extinguisher at the wrong times.
