The U.S. Army Is Working With MIT To Build A Real Life “Iron Man” Suit

Posted Oct 9, 2013

Anyone that has seen an Iron Man movie will be excited to hear that the U.S. Army has commissioned a Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit.  The person wearing the suit would have night vision, enhanced strength, and would be bulletproof.  The suit would have a computer built-in, which would allow the person to instantly respond to situations.  The suit will likely use liquid armor, which is being developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  The material can be turned from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied.  The goal for the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit is to allow the person wearing the suit having the ability to walk through a wide variety of bullets.  The suit could also provide heat, air, and oxygen.
