If your suggestion is to get the Exoskeleton for the power and ability it would bestow upon you...look at it this way, and honestly for a moment
before spending a ton of money to likely learn the same thing in a much harder way.
Scenario #1. You are You. A private citizen buying a very very expensive piece of equipment. High tech, high promises and..it's real expensive, so
surely it must work. Confidence, you'll have ..and a much lighter wallet for awhile, anyway. You'll have something to feel like you could take on the
Scenario #2. You are an elite military special operator where the abilities that suit gives are the baseline you need to survive, if you're depending
on mechanical assistance for that. In that case... $4,200 would bring questions of "What flea market did Uncle shop for that thing at?!", even if it's
in the same box you'll buy it in, as a civilian.
You'll be asking it to do some of the same things. If not at first, then eventually.... Now there are TWO big differences in scenarios and they mean
everything to consider. In #1....You are just you. When it breaks (always at the worst moment) you may or likely will not have the unaided ability to
get yourself out of whatever the suit got you into...before leaving you to swing. In #2, you have the full logistics chain of a military behind you,
probably a tech attached to your unit just for that contraption, and the ability to hand it back with a work order to beg for someone to fix it.
Either way...I bet it breaks the first hard day of use, before the end of the day. Probably breaks in a way the military would frown at, but fix, if
it didn't get someone killed for how and when it broke. For you tho? Your dreams are ruined before they begin, since you won't have a support system
and unlimited funds to fix and maintain.
Just food for thought before buying a new dinner.
