The future is finally here! We’ve all thought about how cool it would be to actually have a real Iron Man suit, and if you join the military in the next couple years or so, chance are good that you could be the next Iron Man, or a Spartan if you’re a Halo fan. The US Army has revealed that they are currently working on a suit that “promises to provide superhuman strength with greater ballistic protection.” The project is being called TALOS, which stands for Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit. Now you may not be able to fly off into space just yet but at the rate technology is increasing, there’s no doubt that flight is a very realistic idea for these suits.

The project is being worked on by the Army as well as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) and so far features include a 360 degrees camera with night vision, sensors which can detect injuries and apply a wound-sealing foam and of course a bullet prove exoskeleton which will also increase the soldiers strength. The exoskeleton, developed by MIT, may the coolest part of the whole suit. It is made of magnetorheological fluids that can change from a liquid to a solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied. A.K.A. Liquid body armor. Technology is amazing.

Lt Col Karl Borjes of the US Army’s RDECOM stated earlier in an Army press release that a weapon system and communications equipment will become a part of the suit eventually and that “It’s advanced armor. It’s communications, antennas. It’s cognitive performance. It’s sensors, miniature-type circuits. That’s all going to fit in here, too.”
