Classic Robot Apocalypse: Sarcos's Exoskeletons

Pulled from the days of the mailing list, I present to you Sarcos's Exoskeleton.

These people have obviously either:

A.) Never seen Terminator, or

B.) Seen Terminator and are blatant Skynet sympathizers.

According to (whose credibility I cannot totally vouch for, but only because I haven't thoroughly checked them out,) these things might be seeing limited field testing next year.

The fact that these things might be able to maneuver autonomously scares the ever loving bejezus out of me. If the Apprenticeship Learning methods that the good folks over at Stanford developed were applied to this...

Well, it makes me shudder.
