10 Incredible Futuristic Technologies That Exist Now!
If you grew up on a steady diet of cartoons and Japanese anime then you are well familiar with mecha and their role in in the public zeitgeist. Well, we don’t have gigantic Gundams flying around and saving the world but the United States military has already put significant money and intel into developing military exoskeletons for use in combat. Right now Raytheon is leading the way in the development of exoskeletons with their Sarcos XOS. The XOS is a mechanical suit that is worn by a soldier. The suit, which can be used for work or combat, gives the soldier incredible strength as well as the ability to move great distances at a minimal speed. Right now the XOS is still in its advanced production stages with the company looking to improve upon the fueling methods of the suit. While Exosuits, like those seen in Starship Troopers, are never going to become the everyday norm for the military, due to price, they could begin to change the way we look at our infantry.DESKTOP
