Hardiman!
« on: November 12, 2007, 02:17:48 PM »
Via BoingBoing comes news of the greatest thing ever in the history of the universe.   Hardiman!

Created by General Electric in 1965 and abandoned due to technical difficulties, the Hardiman would have allowed its operator to lift 1500 pounds as easily as a beer.  Ridley Scott James Cameron later perfected the technology andloaned it to the Colonial Marines to fight Aliens.

Okay, so it's 2007, a solid 40 years since Hardiman.  Where's my power exo-suit?  Surely they've overcome the feedback problems now?  I want Hardiman!

UPDATE: Forgot that James Cameron directed the Aliens movie, not Ridley Scott.  Do'h!
