I've always wanted an exoskeleton.

The car manufacturer made the announcement on its blog, making no secret of the fact that the suit was inspired by the Marvel character, even if the bulky blue design owes more to Sigourney Weaver’s getup in Aliens.

Part of the company’s ‘Next Mobility’ Group, the exoskeleton will help people move from point to point. There’s a wide range of applications here, from soldiers in the field to factory workers lifting heavy loads.

What would you do with one if you had one? Pick up heavy things?

Yes. And excavate. 

What would you like to excavate?

Land for gardening.  :)

Oh now that's a cool idea. :)
