Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

More future goodness, if this trailer is any indication. And could that be Luke Cage making an appearance? That would be an excellent way to introduce him into the movie Marvel Universe. Again, the inner 11-year-old inside me is happily amazed at what is being done with the comic book characters I grew up with.

Real-life Exoskeletons

In my books Rules of Force and Levers of Power, the character of Big Fella Jackson relies on an exoskeleton to overcome injuries he received in the Breakup War. I have some fun with it, imagining an advanced, seamlessly-integrated exoskeleton that gives him almost super human powers. That’s still a ways off, but we’re closer than a lot of people think. A company called Ekso Bionics has developed a working, functional exoskeleton for people in Big Fella’s situation. Check out the video below if you want to see it in action. And note, that’s not just a prototype, but an actual functioning exoskeleton available for sale. Onward and upward!
