    Chinese scientists have apparently managed to create a functional mechanized exoskeletal outfit based on a suit worn by a popular comic book hero.

    The NK-01 suit, was recently showcased in Beijing by FutureWise – the company that developed it.

    It should be noted though that unlike the attire of comic book hero Tony Stark, known also as ‘Iron Man,’ the suit is by no means an omnipotent war machine, but a tool of entertainment.

    And while the suit itself is currently just a prototype, the company intends to become the first company to commercially produce these impressive futuristic outfits.
