Protonex - Fuel Cell Power for Military and Commercial Use
Looks like Lockheed-Martin selected these guys as the fuelcell provider for the HULC experimental exoskeleton. If these guys can actually deliver a useful 3+day output fuelcell integrated power supply (maybe hybrid with EESTOR ultracaps for bursts of power?) for exoskeleton applications, then you are going to see a whole new world of applications. A fuelcell system like that would be useful for civilian exoskeletons, as well as cars. Military-wise, it would be a boon to silent small UAV's and micro UAV's.

Next Big Future: What if Everyone had Exoskeletons Just for Getting Around and Carrying Stuff?
Forget carrying a separate electric bike with common powerplant/energy storage with the exoskeleton. Integrate wheeled propulsion directly into the exoskeleton instead. If japanese anime has taught me anything, rollerskating exoskeletons are made of WIN.
