HULC - No, not that one, or the new one. A bionic one.

HULC - Berkley Bionics's Human Univeral Load Carrier - is available for pre-order. This is an exoskeleton capable of carrying 200lbs with relative ease. I don't think the unit can handle running or crouching, but it is a boon for long pack work - say climbing Everest or Kilimanjaro.

Price tag folks?

I've got a friend who worked on this project in grad school. In case you were wondering, it was all DARPA funded initially.
