US Military Unleashes It's Real Life Iron Man suit

The US military has been spending a whole lot of money on weapons and explosives to destroy the enemies. It was just recently that the US soldiers were killed in a warfare in Afghanistan,that  the Department of Defense came up with the idea of real life Iron Men,only if that is possible. They are said to have pretty much nailed the concept.

Then Tony Stark definitely seems to have some competitors coming up pretty soon. Behold everyone for Iron Man suits or TALOS (Tactical Light Operator Suit) as they call it. It's so futuristic that President Barack Obama proclaimed last year that "we're building Iron Man."

The suit could change the way the US military fights wars. For years, American forces have worked to shed weight from the load they carried through the war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan - more than 56kg on some missions, including weapons, electronics and body Armour. The TALOS suit is a battery-powered exoskeleton that weighs just over 13 pounds. It attaches to the back, thighs, and feet, and allows its wearer to carry an additional 33 pounds. It also has a liquid body armour.

The Department of Defense is two years away from unveiling an Iron Man-like suit. It can repel bullets, help lift heavy objects, and provide lifesaving oxygen. The suit also comes with 3D audio, heating and cooling systems, and embedded computers.

"Hollywood has definitely made the Iron Man suit impossibly thin, impossibly light, impossibly agile and impossibly energy efficient," said Russ Angold, co-founder of Ekso Bionics, a California company that primarily designs exoskeletons for medical use. "So we're really trying to solve the problem and ask the question: What would Iron Man look like if it was real?"

The military has embraced the superhero imagery in its pursuit of the Iron Man suit. The first video to promote the program showed bullets bouncing off an animated Iron Man soldier as he burst through a locked door.

As the project is advanced, Mr Angold invited the people who made the original Iron Man suits join. If Legacy could design functional suits for the movies, he figured, maybe they could do it for the military.

Tony Stark still is one-ups TALOS when it comes to flying though.
