Real-Life Iron Man Suit Gets Upgraded

Yes, it sure looks cool...but how well can it handle itself in a dogfight with F-22 Raptor fighter jets and fighting Russians armed with whip-like energy weapons?

Samantha Murphy at TechNewsDaily provides details about a new second-generation robotic suit developed for the military called Exoskeleton (XOS 2)
that is lighter, faster and stronger than the XOS 1, but uses fifty percent less power.

The suit was unveiled yesterday during a demonstration with Paramount Home Entertainment, presumably as part of the promotion for today's release of Iron Man 2 on Blu-Ray and DVD.  I don't suppose there's any chance of Best Buy offering one of these bad boys as an incentive for picking up the 2-Disc Blu-Ray...?
