That Sarcos one is pretty sweet though much more cumbersome.
Starship Troopers here we come.

the sarcos vid has been around for a while but the berkley one I hadn't seen, looks like they've streamlined it alot (made it less bulky, more practical etc). Cool to see someone doing some real things in one (running, crawling etc).

I wouldn't mind being in one of those while on patrol....I'd be able to outrun even the most nimble crack zombie.

I doubt it. You might be able to get one armour plated and carry 2 miniguns and thousands of rounds of ammunition and just.. take your time.

So I'd be like this...if I were bald or Russian.

This got me really excited to go on duty tonight....

Anything similar to "force feedback" on the gloves? I saw that it can grip, but does the person using the glove actually have any tactile sensation on how hard they're gripping something?

watch the full video. There is a second half with a force feedback mechanism.
