Posted 24 Dec 2004 at 03:09 UTC by steve Share This

CNET, Slashdot, and Boing Boing are reporting on Carlos Owens, a 26 year old steelworking in Anchorage, Alaska who is building an 18 foot, hydraulic exoskeleton. The soon to be finished unit, named NMX04-1A, will be equipped with a flame thrower and other fun accessories. The CNET article mentions several other exoskeletons both real and fictional that have been inspired since Robert Heinlein invented them in his novel Starship Troopers. Photos of NMX04-1A and a log of construction progress can be found on the builder's website. CNET also has a photo gallery of giant robots in a sidebar.
