The Exosuit is revolutionizing the diving suit. Phil Nuytten's created the new diving suit, but it seems as though it could be something that Iron Man would have created. It is six and a half feet long and it weighs a whopping 530 pounds.

It is the first-of-its-kind in design by allowing deep sea divers the ability to plunge more than 1,000 feet underwater. They are able to do this all while maintaining surface level pressure. The rotary joints that are throughout the arms and legs of the diving suit allow the divers to be extremely flexible.

Researchers will be using the suit to study bioluminescent organisms that are deep within the Atlantic Ocean. Scientists will use the diving suit to observe the organisms up close and personal. The goal is to collect the organisms' unique proteins and use them in a study at some point in the future to tackle cancer detection, spinal cord injuries and to help understand the make-up of the human brain.
