Iron Man 2 is only weeks away and everything we’ve seen so far leads us to believe that it will exceed our expectations.

Jon Favreau set the bar very high with his highly entertaining tale of Tony Stark and his creation, and it made Marvel’s Iron Man of genuine interest to those beyond the comic-o-sphere.

For the sequel we’ve been inundated with trailers, posters and various viral websites and now HeyUGuys has been sent something which opens the world of Tony Stark’s second outing up a little more.

Today I received a small box in the post, and on opening it I found this…

And while drinking an Earl Grey out of the fine Accutech mug I perused the contents and found a press release and a video (both of which are copied in to this post below) giving us a sneak preview of the Accutech Haztech Exoskeleton detailing the development process of the full body suit to be unveiled at Stark Expo 2010.

The website is here: and you can read all about it below.

And here’s the press release in full:

AccuTech: a subsidiary of Stark Industries has today given us a glimpse of the latest breakthrough in anthropo-robotics – the ‘HazTech Exoskeleton’.
Using revolutionary hyper-sensors and nano-hydraulic technology, the exoskeleton is able to detect and amplify body movement. Covering over 80% of the human body, it also protects its wearer from high impact and extreme temperatures.
In a video released today at a prototype arm is shown in action, with the full exoskeleton due to be unveiled next month at the hotly anticipated Stark Expo 2010.
Charles Healey, CEO commented: “Putting aside the obvious commercial applications of HazTech, our priority is to unlock its humanitarian potential. By better protecting the lives of peacekeepers and emergency rescue teams, we can help them save the lives of others.”
