United States Commissions Iron Man Armor

Hard to believe, but the military has delegated funds to develop and mass produce Iron Man armor for soldiers.

This isn’t just some exoskeleton for lifting heavy objects though- this is more like the comic book version of Extremis.

Iron ManHere’s what our source has to say:

“The technology in Iron Man is getting a step closer to reality thanks to the United States military. The Army has commissioned a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, which would provide the wearer with superhuman abilities like night vision, enhanced strength, and protection from gunfire.

Each suit would have an on-board computer that would be able to instantly respond to certain situations and provide the user with enhanced situational awareness. According to the press release, the suit may use liquid armor, currently under development at MIT, which has the ability to transform from a “liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied.” The goal is full-body ballistic protection, theoretically allowing the wearer to literally walk through a stream of bullets. 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.”

Another example of Iron Man’s world having an influence on current technology, similar to what Elon Musk has come up with.

Hopefully, the current governmental shutdown won’t impact funding for Iron Man Extremis armor ;)
