iron man?

The good men over at Raytheon, led by Dr. Stephen Jacobsen, have made a robotic suit for the soldier of tomorrow. Although Dr. J is clearly no Tony Stark, the suit is pretty rad. It can effortlessly carry and lift hundreds of pounds. On the downside, its mobility is pretty limited. Things I would like to see in future models: the ability to lift thousands of pounds, the ability to fly at supersonic speeds, a grenade/rocket launcher for an arm, a built-in beverage holder, and Bose speakers; because hey, even soldiers need to rock out.

Memo to the government: screw healthcare and education, keep up the defense spending
