"Our suits give us better eyes, better ears, stronger backs (to carry heavier weapons and more ammo), better legs, more intelligence (in the military meaning...), more firepower, greater endurance, less vulnerability.

A suit isn't a space suit - although it can serve as one. it is not primarily armor - although the Knights of the Round Table were not armored as well as we are. It isn't a tank - but a single M.I. [Mobile Infantry] private could take on a squadron of those things and knock them off unassisted...

...Suited up, you look like a big steel gorilla, armed with gorilla-sized weapons.

The real genius in the design is that you don't have to control the suit; you just wear it, like your clothes, like skin.

The secret lies in negative feedback and amplification."

-From Starship Troopers, by Robert Heinlein.
Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons in 1959




Well now it could be real, check it out.

Oh and just incase people doubt that it'll ever get off the drawing board, if you do a little bita research you can find pictures of some of the prototypes online.


Oh and personally, I've been researching this on and off for a while and I think it's pretty cool....

Uhh.. yeah, it's an exoskeleton. Been in the sci-fi stories for years; I'm not surprised that DARPA finally decided to try making them.

If you think that's cool, you should see the Army's weapons brochures. Got one at the Pentagon a few years ago, and I don't think they're illegal....

At any rate, it has pictures of their High Energy Laser Test Facility (something to that effect) and of the beam firing. Yes, the Army has a huge laser beam weapon.

Fun stuff.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.
