Well I think a lot of it is, but they want to start implementing this by 2010, which is not that far off.

Just wait, maybe the army uniforms will look like DOOM sooner or later

Then again, I think it's actually pretty cool.

I think that shit is pretty fucking cool from a Science POV even if it the US developing and almost certainly going to abuse it, it is still fucking cool!

Like I said, this is a thread concerning only technology. I read that they want to add bits of the kit piece by piece, so that by 2010, at least some of that technology will be on soldiers' uniforms.

I'm very interested in this "MR fluid" and it's bullet stopping capabilites. How will it compare to standard issue ceramic/kevlar body armour? Only time will tell...

Hmm, I don't know.. The system seems like it would eventually cause problems. I mean everything on that kit is battery powered, I think the assualt rifle should at least be able to function without a computer. And those electro-magnetic bombs (or whatever they're called) will actually have good uses on the battlefield.

well some of that gear looked really badass. but the main one for the biggest article just had that little cap as a helmet. Sure, they can have futuristic liqiud armour and body exoskeletons but that wont help much if they get shot in the face.
