This is what happens when you cross the modern fireman with iron man.

The exoskeleton gives firefighters increased strength, and can be fitted with a range of accessories such as the water cannons shown here

The suit allows firefighters to easily climbs dozens of flights of stairs without exhausting themselves

How it works: Joystick controls allow the firefighter to control the system, while a computer mounted on the back sends commands to the arms and legs

The device transfers its weight and oad directly to the ground, so firefighters dont bear the weight

Well, there are a few questions unanswered:
- Cooling of the computer
- Cooling of the batteries
- Lithium Polymer batteries tend to explode when they fail
- Is the firefighter able to wear the right protective gear (including heat protective gear) while wearing this?
- Does he need to use the joystick all the time, removing the use of a hand (which is needed to hold gear and stuff)

Otherwise, a great concept!
