Joining gun bonds metal and plastic within seconds
Adheasiveless, rivetless joining of plastic and metal, by laser etching tiny holes at the joint position in the metal, fast melting the plastic into the holes, then cooling the plastic so that it grabs the holes.

Apparently some sort of patented remote joint manipulation tech. Not clear what it is, but it does seem to allow reduced profile joints.

Interesting design, taking the weight hit to use lower power rotary joints. Easier to add solar modules too, but out of plane.

Derivative of older hardsuits like JIM, using circular rotary joints. I wonder if that Lasermotive power-over-fiber tech would be suitable for trickle power to the suit over the tether?

Weird joint/gymbal design that gets around the need for slip rings in traditional rotating joints if you can tolerate flexing conduit/pipe/tube in your design (or if you are clever, route through only single degree of freedom hinges), and neatly gets around the 90 degree problem that prevents the use of CV joints.
