Combining these muscles with the TALOS exoskeleton would make for one scary, Bionic Man-like robot, don't you think?

I think the Bionic Man TV show was in the 70s, but some things in the distant past are starting to slide together in my memory, too. Just checked Wikipedia--yep, the 70s. Good analogy!

The Army also is working on a futuristic "Iron Man" type exoskeleton suit for soldiers...perhaps this type of thing could have an application there: http://siliconangle.com/blog/2013/10/14/us-army-building-talos-real-life-ironman-armor-to-give-troops-superhuman-strength/

Wow, Ann, this is pretty impressive. This type of strength and capability of robots has a lot of potential for application, and really shows how advanced robot functionality is becoming. I could see this being used in artificial limbs or muscles, which would be an amazing breakthrough for the human users. It reminds me of the bionic man television show back in the 1980s (if I may date myself here, ahem...or was it the 70s? sometimes I get confused).
