Here is the meat and potatoes...

We've seen some of these on ATS before, but both of these videos are pretty wild.

The one's being tested in Tokyo reminded me of a police force wearing these as they patrol the lesser tech enabled streets in a time when China has made the rare earth metals, which are essential for these items, unable to be exported.

Ever noticed how any and all exo suits in computer games, seem to resemble each other? Maybe becuase the fact of the matter is, these suits have been around for years, those in the higher ups of power, leak details and influence the design of such suits in games?

So when we finally do see real life exo soldiers enforcing martial law etc, we will not be suprised, since we have seen it all before, a thousand times and more...

But I think we are long off Terminator, as if a non AI piece of hardware could think or be hacked to think like the terminators ;P.

As for China limiting the precious minerals and metals, this is just another way for them to grab the world by the balls, then force the world to buy their own products from China (want an Iphone, digital camera? Well you can only have it made in China love), have them manufactured there (as oppossed to India, Taiwan etc) and charge an arm and a leg for the privilidge!
