Early development with excess hype (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2014-06-17 19:59 (#24X) This is in very early development and some critical required supporting technologies for it have not yet been created. In fact, a significant part of this is merely research to improve kevlar. The thing that suppossedly makes this suit "Iron man" like is a "powered exoskeleton", which has yet to be developed and I can't find any details about that.

The kevlar would give them harder. Faster maybe with some extra training to handle increased body speeds, I wonder what that might look like. And better, that question is best left up to the troops.

These guys need something made of spun spiderweb silk or something, but made out of teflon. They've already got the Batmobile, sort of.

A sometimes seen enhancement to a sci-fi suit is to make a peson faster. Let's say it's helping to move the legs faster? It couldn't be too much faster and even then the body would have to get use to having the faster advantage. How about aiming (hand-eye) speed, seems like a suit could help a person keep a heavier weapon steay.But then again, nothing more than an idle thoughts. But could the brain and the various body systems keep up with what a suit could provide?
