    First Raytheon comes up with the burn ray, now they bought this. Imagine what the military will resemble in 20-30 years time.

    Check this thing out.

    Raytheon, the giant defense contractor, recently bought up Utah technology firm Sarcos' robotics business. And it wasn't because of Sarcos' work on the Bellagio's fountains, I suspect. For years, Sarcos has been working for the military on real-life exoskeletons, to radically boost soldiers' strength. Here's a video of a Sarcos exoskeleton in action.

    That reminds me of those Kow Yokoyama S.F.3.D. model kits I used to build. Makes you wonder how long until field battle suits will start looking like this.

    Cops will love 'em. No need for taser's, they'll just swat you off or crush your skull.
