The US military is considering the use of exoskeletons like this Sarcos for its soldiers

It was inevitable that funding for these projects by the US Military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) would lead to spin-offs finding their way into private startups. There are now at least another three companies developing exoskeletons for commercial use and the focus is on creating them to help people with spinal injuries. A Swedish company, Ekso Bionics, makes a 20kg titanium and aluminium suit that costs $100,000 a pop, which has helped several crippled individuals walk again for the first time.

Only they’re not people. They are the first of a new breed of mobile, semi-intelligent robots designed to assist customers and work alongside human employees in shops, hotels and hospitals – and perhaps ultimately even replace them.
