Re: Powered Spacesuits

Futurist Material science?

A better MIT Biosuit design, clothes in a future might one day become the transhumanism Exoskeleton like you see in Ironman movies and video games??

'Artificial Muscles Woven Into Smart Textiles Could Make Clothing Hyperfunctional'

https://spectrum.ieee.org/smart-clothes … al-muscles

In the Aliens horror franchise films Ellen Ripley dons a powered exoskeleton suit to engage in hand to hand combat with the Xenomorph Queen alien. In James Cameron's Avatar a guy gets into a machine suit a Amplified Mobility Platform to fight these big Smurf colored Natives on a fictional planet. In Japanese cartoon animation and video games these Mecha Power Ranger type suits and guys wearing big robots are a common theme.
Others think Exoskeletons from Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers or guys like Tony Stark Ironman will always stay a thing of science fiction

Re: Powered Spacesuits

More than a Bio-Suit

Korean researchers have demonstrated a simple inexpensive robotic exoskeleton they say, if commercialized, could make elderly people more robust in walking.
