Okay, We Have The Power Loader Now, Where’s the Alien Queen to Fight?

it-came-from-the-interwebsSeems like more often than not we are treated to a new video of some exoskeleton being worked on by mad scientists, but this is the first that I recall of one that looks, operates and is called the same thing as the one featured in the 1986 Aliens movie. This is the Power Loader power amplification robot, currently under development by Activelink a subsidiary of Panasonic. It is a full body exoskeleton which when completed will be able to carry over 100 kg (approx. 220 lbs.). Activelink is also working on a compact version to use in the reconstruction of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. I think more importantly though, can we use it to fight aliens while we quote Ellen Ripley, “Get away from her, you BITCH!“?
