The CLOi SuitBot is a robotic exoskeleton designed to "support and enhance a user's legs", giving people like factory workers and people doing heavy lifting or operating heavy tools greater strength and mobility.
It's not the first exoskeleton we've seen that purports to give humans superhuman strength. Hyundai and Japanese company Cyberdyne have both shown off medical exoskeletons designed to assist people with low mobility, while Ford is also working on a design that reduces strain for workers doing over-head tasks.

The military has been working on this for decades.
And they aren't the only ones,
The main draw back is power, and actual usability.
If LGS snip actually works?
Good on them.
If it don't.
This is only the beginning.

Exoskeletons are cool and will make a heavy workload easier to move around.
They will also contribute to less employment, and taken to the logical conclusion, won't require the operator.
Can't stop progress all the same.
