DARPA Warrior Web Exoskeleton (PHOTOS+VIDEO)

The U.S. Army infantry is about to go robotic. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA has begun testing a new exoskeleton design that’s meant to be worn underneath a soldier’s existing uniform as an unobtrusive second skin. The Warrior Web System is composed of sensors and components created to provide extra support when needed. The system hopes to allow humans to easily lift and carry hundreds of pounds and has the potential to be used on the battlefield in a manner of years instead of decades.
