President Obama announces the building of Iron Man

Friday, February 28, 2014

In case you've missed it, during a press conference on Tuesday, President Obama made a rather humorous announcement, that the Government is building Iron Man. It was, of course, a joke, but, apparently, there's some truth to it. From The Vrege:
The United States government has in fact been creating a suit designed to give its wearer superhuman strength and perception. Called the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS), the US Army announced work on it last May and said it was hoping to have an initial suit within a year, with an eye toward potentially having it on the field within three.

The suit truly sounds like a work of science fiction. It would give its wearer full-body bullet protection and include a built-in weapon of its own. It would also be able to monitor its wearer's vitals — including body and skin temperature, heart rate, and hydration — by resting against their skin. A display on the suit would show its remaining power, and potentially much more. The Army wants TALOS to use networking and an onboard computer to give its wearer an enhanced awareness of the situation and action around them, and it's easy to imagine that could be shown to them in a manner a bit like what Tony Stark sees inside his helmet.
