 A couple of my past posts reflect on science fiction predicting the realities we’re experiencing with the advent of the web, web2.0 and socialweb. Links to those posts follow along with some shots from Ratheon’s innovation department where they’re experimenting with developing an Exoskeleton that begs comparison with Iron Man. Once considered the world of fantasy, increasingly what we imagine becomes real.

  1. I love to see this stuff. However, I’d prefer to see this robotic exoskeleton being used for more humanitarian puposes that military might. Imagine the impact this might have on someone who is an amputee, has been bound to a wheelchair, or a senior citizen.
