New Power Suit Amplifies Human Strength

I think that the idea - while they could move patients in a number of ways now (burly male nurses or two-three nurses working together) that allowing a single nurse to use a suit might make better use of existing personell resources.

 

Its an interesting idea, but I think it'll be some time before they work the kinks out of it.

I think this is moving entirely the wrong way. I want my granny in one of those babies, tossing chavs left and right like bowling pins.

My mother could've used one of those.

Funky as it looks, at least it seems like it could eventually be something functional, rather than just a novelty.

Power suits, invisibility cloaks...those crazy Japanese are going to take over the world.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

True, both my father's father and my father could have used such a suit near the end of their lives. :-
