Capt.Sge.Bai44.070605141408.Photo00.Photo.Default-384X344Just goes to show, there's no situation that can't be made worse by the addition of a geeky toy. Tsukuba University has build a "robot suit", which is basically a powered suit. The cool part:

The 15-kilogram (33-pound) battery-powered suit, code-named HAL-5, detects muscle movements through electrical-signal flows on the skin surface and then amplifies them.

Don't tell me you don't want to have a robot detect electrical signal flows on your body. I know you do.
