A favourite creative writer of mine, is A.A.Attinasio.
In one of his novels, he describes "Statskin", a transparent skin , that protects and nourishes the wearer indefinetly, and reduces cellular decay, placing the wearer in stasis.
i do know the military are currently developing "Nanosuits", for military applications, powered indefinetly by -273k supercoils, and fullerine based microcircuitry. Ever since the c60 buckyball was discovered, research has really taken off. I believe it's only a matter of time it all comes together, and a invulnerable statskin type weapon is avaliable to trained specialist troops.
Already camoflague chameleon type skin has been developed (New scientist magazine, 2007).....
i would like your opinions on this.. in our lifetime, or pie in the sky?

i had a dream years back

i was in a squad team landing from an aircraft of some type

we were like 5 guys

i spoke to one wich was a freind of mine when we were running from the plane

we were running towars a little door leading down.

when we reached the door the guy said to me look at your arm

and i didnt have normal skin it was green..

then he said look at their latest developent

then skin stiffened on my arm and turned more white, then it sort of hardened and got a yellowbrown color like lightý burned..

we openen the door and there was water inside the building. we went in and could breathe in the water,...

i noticed a dog breathing in the first room and was so interested in the dog i missed to swim after the other guys

but i got the feeling that the world was below water and the skin would protect me from being in water for a long time.

hmm just thought i would add this... yes i belive something like i described will be made though advanced bioengineering

Indefinite sustainability? No way, no how. Any fuel your body uses comes from the suit, which means the suit needs its fuel to come from somewhere. Nobody rides for free. Of course, even if we had the sort of nanotech you'd need refuel your body in the field, I don't think it'd be the best way to go- I don't think your skin is the best medium for that sort of thing. Better to pipe directly into an artery or something.
