is light, durable, and easy to mold, but there's something so raw
about a metal exoskeleton
-- built long before anyone could call it steampunk
-- that it makes us want to strap on our hard hat, hop in the Engadg-O-Matic Time Machine
, and travel back to a bulkier past where we could give this big guy a painful hug. Check the source link for all sorts of adorable / frightening prototype illustrations of General Electric's army-commissioned "Hardiman force amplifying exoskeleton" from 1967, and feel free to drift off to happier times in the process. Just come back at some point, cool?
