Warrior Web exosuit gets about a 10% net improvement in walking with load

Steve Jurvetson had a video and picture of the latest DARPA Warrior Web exosuits from Harvard and SRI at a Feb, 2015 meeting.

The Harvard team uses linear actuators on the side of the backpack (instead of twisting filaments with the SRI team) to get a 10% net improvement in walking with load. The backpack is just a weight load; all of the actuators and batteries are in the black box.
