Ghost in the Shell: Closer to Reality?

A while ago, Jordan introduced me to Ghost in the Shell. It's an interesting anime series focused on the intersection of artificial intelligence, philosophy, cybernetics, and crime-fighting; the first season was really quite impressive.

Much to my surprise, I stumbled across the following video during my daily news consumption. Exoskeletons like the one demonstrated in this video play a key role in a few GitS episodes, and I'm amazed to see how advanced the real life progress on these frightening machines has become.
