Hopefully future improvements will be able to do much more.  First improvement - cup holder.

100KG = approx 221 pounds.  Umm, I weight slightly less than said 100KG (i.e. > 230% less than said machine) and can easily lift 221 pounds to any place up to about 8' off the ground. Now, eventually I'd get tired, but I sure wouldn't hurt anybody else doing it and I don't cost $357K to buy either. 

 I need to ask my employer for a raise, I guess since apparently I have superhuman strength.  Too bad my primary job isn't manual labor.

I thought the same thing when I first read 100kg, but you have to consider 2 things:

1) By 2015, the machine will probably be capable of lifting a good bit more.  If not, improvements (and competition) should begin to appear shortly after its commercial release.

2) You may be able to lift 100kg to a full press (8' high?) if you're a relatively lean/muscular 200+, since indications are that the world record is over 500 pounds (this is with some snap, mind you, not a clean military-style press).  However, I doubt you can do it with much more than a barbell, and I doubt you can do it for as long as anyone using the machine could.

You can lift for a while, but you get tired, especially if you lift near your maximum weight.  When you get tired, you rest -- but you still get paid.  If someone in the machine can lift the machine's maximum with little or no rest like a crane driver might, his efficiency will pay for the machine over time.  Also, let's not forget that this machine will likely reduce lifting injuries on the job, which means less lost time and less spent on worker's compensation and disability.

By 2020, when the price has come down a bit, I bet every major construction site has as many of these as they do Bobcats.

You must be one big guy. I'm 5'9 160 pounds (without my shoes) and I have to stand on the tips of my toes to reach the button on my smoke alarm on the ceiling. And that's 7'11 in the air.

What is 'geneticaly enginered' ? Hopefully the super soldiers know how to spell simple words. You will be very obsolete in the near future.
