The issue with the batteries?
The technology which operates one of the HAL hybrid assistive limb suits, as designed by Cyberdyne from Japan, is elegant and light weight, and
although it requires battery power, its batteries are not bulky. If you added to that design, the sort of bullet proof skin that Canadian inventor
Troy Hurtusbise used when building his prototype Trojan S armour suit, an unpowered suit which covered 95 percent of the body and had GOD only knows
how many advantages over everything the military of the US has put its men in over the last fifteen years, then you would have an Iron Man suit, sans
the arc reactors, palm blasts, and flying capability.
The technology already exists. What they should be doing now, is asking the people already leading the feild in these skill sets, Troy for one of
them, to work on it. He has already said that he wants the armour he designed to be available to the troops of his homeland, and the US and the UK,
that his main drive, despite him having bankrupted himself several times building ever tougher armour sets, is the safety of military personnel when
about their duties.
I cannot believe that the US government have had all these new players, and DARPA sitting around trying to work something out, when the technology
already exists, and just needs combining together!
