    The future of the Infantry?

    http://www.gizmag.com/go/3062/picture/5732/

    Two future soldier combat uniform concepts were demonstrated to members of the US congress recently - a vision of what the American soldier will be wearing in 2010 and ten years hence in 2020. Both systems look straight out of a science fiction movie, with the 2020 concept bearing more than a passing resemblance to Star War's Darth Vader, complete with armour, weapons systems and information advantages that border on unsporting. The two new uniform systems are being developed under the Future Combat System Program and include a weapon, head-to-toe individual protection, onboard computer network, soldier-worn power sources, and enhanced human performance.

    This is a guy who already is trying to get a Contract with the Military and L.E's. He says his is an Exo. Calls it the Trojan. But the Armor he has is incredible. Stops Shrapnel from grenede blasts and IED's. Shotgun Blasts, etc etc. Says it weighs 50 lbs max.

    Probably would be much better for law enforcement than military. He needs to clean up the lines so it doesn't look so, happy, let's say.
