    This little thing will help us understand that 70% of Planet Earth.

    But it mostly helps me find out what the things down there taste like.

    Damn I'd give my left cajone to do a deep dive in one of those!!!! No bends, no decompression, no depth limit... no submarine

    Maybe. But I'm sure there have been exosuits in the military and in corporations for a long time now.

    Betcha not, with the significant exceptions of deep sea diving hard suits and space walk gear. And neither of us can show proofs.

    That said, there's research going on at DARPA and the medical device communities to build suits to carry loads and enable handicapped persons to function.

    I don't bet without proof. But consider the deep pockets and research labs of both gov and private corporations. NASA would be my best bet. I could ask the SEAL we allowed to join our twisted little group. if the navy (still can't believe we have a pet squid lol) has them he'd know. But even if he admitted to it I probably couldn't say so. *dhrugs* So much can never be told.
