#USArmy to test radical ‘Iron Man’ bullet-proof liquid armour that gives soldiers super-human strength
The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) would effectively give its wearer superpowers, such as the ability to see in the dark, super-human strength and a way of deflecting bullets.
It is aimed at providing Navy SEALs and Special Forces with enhanced mobility and protection technologies – and will be tested in 2018.
Scientists at the #Massachusetts Institute of Technology (#MIT) are developing a next-generation kind of armour called ‘liquid body armour.’
It ‘transforms from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied,’ the Army website said.
