    DARPA is testing an exoskeleton which can help heavily encumbered soldiers cover long distances with less effort and minimize the risk of muscle injuries.

    The device uses a system of powered cables that timely adds pulling forces to human movement and therefore saves a serviceman’s energy. The soldiers undergoing the test have to hike a three-mile distance across differing terrains.
