    The U.S. Army is looking to develo the Tactile Assault Light Operator Suit–a “smart armor” that would sere as a powering monitoring, health monitoring, and integrated weapon all in one.

    The U.S. Army is working to develop an Iron Man-like suit that would give soldier superhuman strength.  This exoskeleton called the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (Talos) is essentially “smart armour” that would have layers of smart materials fitted with sensors, as well as, a wearable computer similar to Google Glass.  It would monitor soldiers’ vitals and use hydraulics to increase strength.  It would be “power monitoring, health monitoring, and integrating a weapon” all in “one” but they say no “one” industry can build it so they’re calling on research and development organizations, private industry as well as government labs and academia to support the project.
