US military set to commission ‘Iron Man’ like Suit

I guess dreams for Iron man fans out there are soon becoming true, thanks to the US Military, the technology in Iron Man is getting a step closer to reality. The Army has commissioned a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, which would provide the person putting it on with superhuman abilities like enhanced strength, night vision, and bullet proofing.

Each suit will be equipped with micro computers that instantly respond to certain situations and provide the user with enhanced situational awareness. The suit is being developed at MIT and will use liquid armor which has the ability to transform from a “liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied.”  Its clear the US military is aiming for full-body ballistic protection.  A panel that rests against the skin would be able to detect and
respond to the body’s core temperature, skin temperature, heart rate, and hydration levels. The suit would also provide basic life support such as heat, air, and oxygen.

This would be a big step in defense technology and a big shift from fiction to real life
