Iron Man 2 DVD PreSale

In a great little parallel promotional bit to bring some notoriety to the September 28th release from Paramount Home Entertainment of Iron Man 2, actor Clark Gregg, who plays SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson in the Iron Man movies (and the other Marvel Entertainment based movies, like Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and Nick Fury) found himself the lucky one to get and check out some real-life Iron Man-like toys that some defense contractors have already put together.

Exoskeleton technology is not a new thing but powered exoskeleton’s are a whole different beast, like the XOS suit pictured above or the Lockheed Martin HULC exoskeleton. What little information is out in the public eye, though exciting, I’m sure doesn’t compare to what isn’t being revealed by whatever might be getting worked on by whomever these days.

I’ve seen a lot of cool looking tech and gadgets out and about, but Clark Gregg got to check one out in person and I’m officially jealous! The suit in the video is yet another entry in the field of super-cool gadgets and it is from Raytheon Sarcos. Check it out!

Cool stuff gang.

Iron Man 2 comes out Tuesday, September 28th. I’ve pre-ordered mine and I’m just sittin’ back and waiting for it to arrive. How about you?
