In preparation for Iron Man 2's release on May 2, Marvel Studios released a clip showing a futuristic exoskeleton from the fictitious AccuTech Corporation. The studio also created a website for Accutech which gives even more details on what they call the "Haztech" suit.
Besides being a smart promotional tie-in for the movie, I think the clip gives us a glimpse into the future. Suits that can mechanically enhance human performance are a reality, but the technology is still years away from being the advanced type seen in the Iron Man video. However, I've included another video that shows a real, working exoskeleton being developed for the U.S. military. After watching that clip, it's not hard to see where Marvel got ideas for their superpowered suit .
