I think we both agree on the same lines for the future of the armed forces. I think the mockup is very primitive as far as it goes. I would like to see something more along the lines of the Iron Man armor design. A titanium alloy might make it able to withstand small arms and rifle fire and a compressed air jump jets could give it a fairly large range. Add in a water supply contained air and waste disposal unit and you are pretty much self contained. 24hr wear ability with a solar charge option. yeah I think it could be done in the near future. BTW this discussio brings out the engineer in me.

Did you know there are these brain implants for people that have been blind since birth? It's pretty ****ty, but it gives them a rough outline of their surroundings. Pretty friggin neat stuff.
