Anybody remember Exosquad? I remember stumbling across it as a kid and it just about blew my mind.

Outtakes at the end show they faked at least one of these shots?

Also, it's not an exoskeleton until it encases you. This is more of a pantoskeleton.

Sorry, my natural pessimism sees these and thinks they won't look anywhere near as cool when they at your next political protest, dressed in black and spraying rubber bullets and tear gas. YMMV.

Yeah, how long before someone hangs a gun on the end of one of these and takes to the streets, a la Phoenix Jones?

This looks really cool, but the cautious-ness that now lives in my optimism makes me wonder: Doesn this give any significant enhancement to strength, or speed?

Or maybe that's not the point of this.

The point is to look cool in a big metal suit. They didn't add any hydraulics/electronics to this thing, so any increases in speed/strength would be a byproduct of the added size/length of the levers involved.

Still though, it does look really cool.

Longer arm = more torque? But I'm sure it's slower.

Is this for a movie, or just a fun project? The fake rocket on the arm makes me guess the former, but I can't read Japanese.

It's behind you!

So it makes you slower, bulkier and less stable. With a water rocket.

The water-rocket nacelles gave me the lol.

Also, I now want a rubber leek.

You seem to have forgotten "taller". Also, never underestimate the value of an arm mounted water rocket.

I'll keep laughing at this ridiculous contraption until they combine it with this not-so-ridiculous contraption. Then I will do everything in my power to stay out of its way.

This would have been a lot better with Del Toro directing, an R rating, and a $150 million budget.
