At $123,000 USD, the Power Jacket MK3 exoskeleton turns you into a real-life mech robot that mimics your every move. This suit weighs just 25 kg (55 lb) and utilizes “a master-slave system where your arms and legs are strapped to motorized joints that, when moved, drive the motion of the suit’s corresponding limbs.” Continue reading for a video, more pictures, and additional information.

Currently its arms are capable of lifting about 15 kg (33 lb), but for safety reasons they are limiting it to just 2 kg (4.4 lb).

The suit’s construction is robust enough to handle a quick jog, and the hands are delicate enough to pick up an egg without cracking it. The company plans to showcase the suit publicly at Wonder Festival 2013 later this month, and has created a comic to help flesh out its story.
