Just wondering

OK this is completely off topic of every thing else and makes me sound like a 5 yr. old, but do you guys know if the army or anyone has ever made robotic armor kind of like iron man? Just asking... :)

I'm pretty sure people have made exoskeleton type robots, where they wear something on the outside of their legs or arms to make them "stronger".  But I don't think we have the technology to make a stand alone suit yet.  I don't think batteries would be up to the task.

There are quite a few, not as advanced as iron man one, however, something towards that side. All the publicly available/known ones are used for assistance purposes  and not as a weapon. Even if there is something similar to iron man armor it would be top secret project as most hi tech weapons.

Have a look at these:
