Meh.

So it's a "new" website with non-native-english-speaking content providers, probably mostly Indian.


They get a pass.

I'm not so sure about that. Immaculate spelling but total fail at word selection and grammar. I would expect a similar level of quality across those things. A list of words can be stored and referenced, thus never misspelled.

Looks like a collaboration between a non English writer, a translation engine, and a random word generator.

They baited me with 'robotic exoskeleton' then proceeded to confuse the shiat out of me with a meaningless word salad.

Do anime mecha count as exoskeletons? Or is that classified as something different?

Thanks to Hammer Industries power armor, you can go do the needful with yourself.  Even if you weren't flexible enough to before.

Gergesa: Do anime mecha count as exoskeletons? Or is that classified as something different?


Mecha is a very broad category that includes a lot of non-humanoid robots and vehicles. So exoskeletons are mecha.
Not all mecha are exoskeletons of course. Beyond a certain size you stop wearing the mech and are more sitting in its cockpit.  Something like a power doll or landmate has a pilot at its core but is mostly self standing and not using their body for more than control. An arm slave is even larger but the pilot still drives it by a full body armature.
By the time you get to gundamn size things they're usually piloted by joysticks and pedals or some other rig. So not an exoskeleton even by a stretched definition.

The article caught sayof, and subby missed an opportunity to dust off a classic.

For those who didn't bother, here's the original article from the NY Times.

Manfred J. Hattan: For those who didn't bother, here's the original article from the NY Times.


Subbys link:
"It's definitely useless in machine learning," Schmidt told General Thomas. "If I go under your tent one day, I can solve most of your problems." General Thomas said he was so upset he wanted to get Schmidt out of the car, but he stayed away.

NY Times:
"You absolutely suck at machine learning," Mr. Schmidt told General Thomas, the officer recalled. "If I got under your tent for a day, I could solve most of your problems." General Thomas said he was so offended that he wanted to throw Mr. Schmidt out of the car, but refrained.

Omg, it's a College Freshman level attempt to avoid plagiarism, but they change quoted conversations! This is bad. The entire article is a copy/paste/thesaurus word replace job, and that's why it's hard to read.

Designing a exosuit is the easy part. It's powering it that is hard.

I've got a theory on how to circumvent that, but I'm more held up by the cost of good sensors.
It's more of a price/complexity problem in my view.
