||Where's the battery pack?
||Exoskeletons are a staple of Science Fiction, and
are starting to become baked in the real world. At
the moment they either involve a huge battery
pack (larger than a person could carry
unsupported) or a tethered power supply.
||Also, there's a small problem with using an cord
but no frame, which is that your power is severely
limited by the limits of the underlying
muscular/skeletal systems. This isn't unsolvable,
but since humans can already exert enough force
to damage said systems (strained muscles, even
broken bones, typically under stress), the actual
utility of this is going to be very limited.
