Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare?s prediction about what would happen in the future is actually happening.

A Call Of Duty inspired exoskeleton that is aiming to help paraplegics to get back on their feet and be able to walk again, has been approved by the United States government?s FDA. (Food and Drug Administration)
The Sledgehgammer Games team has applauded the move.

“Research for the exoskeleton design in Call of Duty: ?Advanced Warfare began at our studio nearly three years ago. The team started seeing the advancements in prosthetics, both for military and civilian application, and imagined how this technology could aid the Tier 1 soldier of the future. FDA approval of the exoskeleton is a big step towards further development of the exoskeleton.? Sledgehammer stated on its Facebook page.

The marketing clearance issued by Food and Drug Administration for the ReWalk Robotic Exoskeleton means that it will be now available for the general consumer. The new technology, exoskeleton features a series of motorized joints at the hips and knees that will help people walk normally again. The user will wear a backpack that is containing a power supply, and wireless remote control worn on the wrist that will allow the user to command ReWalk to walk, stand up and sit down.

Christy Foreman, FDA director, said in a statement that ?innovative devices such as ReWalk go a long way towards helping individuals with spinal cord injuries gain some mobility. Along with physical therapy, training and assistance from a caregiver, these individuals may be able to use these devices to walk again in their homes and in their communities.?

In Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare that will be released on November 4 for PC and consoles, players will wear an exosuit that will give them some kind of super-abilities like increased strength, dexterity and more.
