Augmenting Humans with Exoskeletons

Course we have been augmenting people with tools for ages.  But the idea of more directly augmenting the body with exoskeletons is interesting too.  Ford is now doing this more generally, which will be interesting to watch, will all physical workers soon have exoskeletons?  To add strength, to limit injury?  Is this a step towards general robotics?

Automaker hopes to reduce injuries with mechanical help.
