Make Your IRON MAN Dreams Come True with This Japanese Exoskeleton

Since movies were invented, they have given us a glimpse into the future. There are the dystopian worlds of Metropolis and Mad Max. There are the nicer ones like Back to the Future Part II. We’ve also seen movies where technology is set years before our time, even when it’s present day, like Iron Man. The team at Japanese company Skeletonics have created an exoskeleton that while doesn’t come with its own F.R.I.D.A.Y., will give you the feeling of an Avenger.

Reported by Kotaku, this suit lets you get inside it, move its arms, and walk around in it. Other than that, it does…nothing else. Reyes Tatsuru Shiroku, the suit’s creator, said they “weren’t really worried about making anything useful.” Pardon us, but walking around in a robot suit is the DEFINITION of useful.

We get that sitting in your own robot skeleton egging someone on for a scuffle looks great…on paper. Please keep in mind that it has ZERO weapons and does not give you super strength. But who knows? You might be able to mod it with some sort of force field generator, but that’s all on you.

You’ll be able to pick up your own version of this suit for a measly 10,000,000 yen—approximately $93,500. Here’s a cool idea: get four of your friends to buy one as well, then all of you run into each other. Send us a picture if you turn into Voltron and we will be sure post it. (JK don’t do that, it sounds dangerous and unsafe.)

Even though the “future” is not coming as quickly as movies had led us to believe, we are definitely on our way there. We’re still waiting for webshooters that don’t just use silly string. C’mon, SCIENCE!!
