Iron Man comes to us next week, and we are stoked bloggers. Sure, this isn’t a movie site, but we’ve moved beyond just gear into the CrunchLifestyle, and that includes all things awesome like Iron Man himself.

Live Science has put together a neat little gallery and run-down of real-life Iron Man-type power suits that actually exist, including the HAL and Sarcos XOS exoskeletons.

This is power armor, letting you lift heavy burdens and do other physically tiring tasks with no trouble.

Sure, they don’t look as cool as Iron Man’s armor, but then they weren’t designed by Tony Stark either.
