Robotic exoskeleton could multiply one's strength and endurance as much as 20 times

From the Associated Press (5/16, Jewell)

Designed by robotics firm Sarcos in Salt Lake City under contract for the U.S. Army, the aluminum and electronic 'exoskeleton' "works by sensing every movement the wearer makes and almost instantly amplifying it." The suit reportedly could multiply one's "strength and endurance as many as 20 times." The Army hopes "soldiers may someday wear the suits in combat, but it's focusing for now on applications such as loading cargo or repairing heavy equipment."
