The SuitX Phoenix exoskeleton clocks in at what seems like a pricey $40,000; however, the company hopes to keep bringing the cost of its robotic suit down until it's comparable to a motorized wheelchair, giving another affordable option to paraplegics looking to expand their mobility options. In other news, Microsoft recently revealed more details about Project Natick, its underwater data center experiment. The module was nicknamed after a Halo character, and the tests seem to have gone quite well.
