US Military to create "Iron Man Armour"

[quote]The US Army is working to develop "revolutionary" smart armour that would give its troops "superhuman strength". It is calling on the technology industry, government labs and academia to help build the Iron Man-style suit. Other exoskeletons that allow soldiers to carry large loads much further have already been tested by the army. The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (Talos) would have such a frame but would also have layers of smart materials fitted with sensors. The suit would also need to have wide-area networking and a wearable computer similar to Google Glass, the US Army said.[/quote] Increasing strength? No that's mjölnir armour and we have known this for at least a decade since Halo became popular and the armour made a ton of sense with the technology being made and available.

    • It's called Talos? Talos -> Skyrim Skyrim -> Bethesda Bethesda -> Fallout Fallout -> Power Armor Power Armor = Talos? Sounds fishy to me.

      • [quote]Increasing strength? No that's mjölnir armour[/quote] Because MJOLNIR was the first and only powered armor in fiction to increase strength.

          I still find the "Iron Man suit" idea impractical for front line use. Unless they make a power source strong enough and small enough to work. Even then I only see combat capable versions going to Special Forces as a fire support platform for specific operations. Or at the very least it will continue the tradition of being a glorified forklift. Also, I wonder if they realized that acronym can be viewed as a video game reference.

            • So they settled on Talos instead of Mjolnir. Should've been Mjolnir.
