Life in the military has just gotten a whole lot more interesting with the Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC) exoskeleton. While it won’t be as useful as the ones see in G.I. Joe, this li-ion battery-powered exoskeleton ought to turn a normal grunt into a well-equipped soldier who is ready to wreak havoc on the enemy, featuring lightweight hydraulic legs with titanium structure that allows one to hang a 200lb backpack from the back frame while carrying heavy chest armor and kit from shoulder extensions with relative ease. Battery life will drain fast if you’re running, but slow marches at 4kph ought to last for up to 5 hours. Needless to say, the HULC is still a work-in-progress and we’re extremely interested in the final product.
