The title says it all. Is this cool or what, ATS? The new T.A.L.O.S. exoskeleton suits in development are said to have a prototype out in 2018. Theses suits will have:

advanced armor,
command and control computers,
power generators, and
enhanced mobility exoskeletons.

Most importantly, these suits willl have liquid armor called Shear Thickening Fluid (STF) that hardens upon impact at any tempreature "providing protection from penetration by high-speed projectiles and additionally dispersing energy over a larger area."


I did an earlier thread on these suits here:
www.abovetopsecret.com...



The TALOS program is costing an estimated $80 million. TALOS will have a physiological subsystem that lies against the skin that is embedded with sensors to monitor core body temperature, skin temperature, heart rate, body position and hydration levels MIT and Poland working on liquid body armor MIT is developing a next-generation kind of armor called “liquid body armor.” Liquid body armor transforms from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied. Scientists at a Polish company that produce body armor systems are working to implement a non-Newtonian liquid in their products. The liquid is called Shear-Thickening Fluid (STF). STF does not conform to the model of Newtonian liquids, such as water, in which the force required to move the fluid faster must increase exponentially, and its resistance to flow changes according to temperature. Instead STF hardens upon impact at any temperature, providing protection from penetration by high-speed projectiles and additionally dispersing energy over a larger area


This is gonna be a real-life Ironman suit. I wonder how this fits into the scheme of things on a world-wide scale....? Do TPTB have a war planned for the near future? Why build these suits if they don't intend to use them? 2018 is also the year that SpaceX is planning to make its first trips to Mars...maybe they'll find life...? Maybe there will be a major war to "cloud" the news that life is found on Mars...? Anyway, don't mind me. Just thinking out loud. So, what say you, ATS?

Corn starch armors, cool.

Apparently in a storm a boat got stranded in a beach nearby, they got a tractor to pull it, the tractor tried and tried but the boat won't budge, they got another tractor and the thing dint move, there was a guy from the university laughing his ass off seeing the poor people try to get their boat off the beach... Wet sand is shear thickening too, in the end they opted to gut the boat as they didn't had a crane to take it out without pulling.

There's a moral in there somewhere.............

Don't strand your boat

Very cool. Might be good for motorcycle protection too.

Probably nothing nefarious. Probably just suits for the illegal immigrants to take us out with, in place of citizenship of course...
All jacked into the facebook/Google cloud resistance locator AI.
Resistance is futile!

Love your avatar, needs more Magnum though.

Sci-fi becomes reality. 500 years ahead of schedule too.

Mark I Prototype - Mjolnir
Initiated in 2512 the Mark I was one of the Navy's first experiments with powered exoskeletons - more human-powered defense structures than suits, the Mark I took 10 years to develop, but was bulky, unwieldy and needed to be tethered to a power source due to the extraordinary amount of energy needed to power it. This was the downfall to the system as it required a connection to a fusion generator which hindered movement. The Mark I Prototype Exoskeleton improved the strength and stamina of the wearer and allowed a user to lift two tons (4,000 pounds) and run at 32 km/h (19.88 MPH) for extended periods of time. The Mark I contained a cutting edge on board computer that could assist the wearer by transmitting tactical and communications information to the standard neural implant issued to a soldier, the suit however did not possess the ability to carry an A.I on board. The armor could also be equipped with motion sensors, infrared scopes, and could be mounted with a 30mm mini-gun that fired on self-targeting armatures.

I wish the focus of new technology would be applied to more peaceful and environmental causes rather than military applications. If we would put as much brain power into developing new and clean energy sources, developing ways to supply ample clean water to people everywhere, curing cancer and other life threatening diseases, developing recyclable technology to rid the planet of excessive waste and creating ways to feed and house the homeless, just think how much better the world would be.

Instead developing weapons for war will only lead us down a path of self-destruction. Humanity is in control of it's own destiny.

Hopefully it won't attract any time travelling aliens. Getting de ja vu.

I would have thought the answer would have been to build a low wall around the hull, using sandbags (ironically)...then pump water into the enclosure...the seal would be disturbed, and the suction would give up it's grip.
