Iron Man is a Farmer!

Japan is now using robot suits so old people can farm.

This is great! It's a little sad that granny is the one doing the intensive manual labor, but now at least she has the power of robotics behind her. I want to see the elderly doing more, though, like dunking basketballs. Heck, I would like to dunk a basketball, but at 5'5" it is unlikely to ever happen. Dear Japan, please get to work on the power legs that would let me leap up to the rim.

I must say, cyborgs were far more exciting in science fiction books. Pulling turnips out of the ground with less effort is indeed amazing, but not as much as throwing bad guys through walls. I will take what I can get, though.
