this is just crazy.

How long until there’s a new pl fed with these things you wager?

Well, my raw 1RM is 40 lbs, but equipped, I squat 9000!

That guy wasn’t really lifting anything amazing, they could have done a little better than a jug of water and some bags of dirt. A human would have been better.

lol new powerlifting gears

he’s going to carry his patient with pollio up a mountain…lolwut?

I believe the U.S. military is working on one too, but this one looks farther along. Closer to commercialization.

The US military has been developing robotic suits for decades. They have only been field-testing them for slightly less than that. I used to serve with a guy who was part of the program (this was 14-15 years ago).
