Have been keeping an eye on DARPA, as usual. Found they have what may be considered as the end, of what the below quotes detail. That is some thing
else, considered with other programs such as CROWS, these systems add up if looked at with an open mind for the bigger picture.
Sure, people say it could, or would never happen. Well the same was said about 9/11, and even now there are those who say it won't. I'll never
understand selective ignorance, oh well every one has the right to be wrong, myself included.
Combine the next two concepts, and let me know what you all think. This I say, looks far more sinister than most may first consider.
Advanced Development of Next Actuators for Human Sensory Feedback
The development of actuators with enhanced capabilities is critical to the achievement of sensory feedback systems for intuitive, real time human
operations of telerobotic systems. The objective of this research project is to continue development of new actuators using active materials which
will enhance the capabilities of dexterous, exoskeletal feedback systems for telerobotic applications.
Exoskeleton Active Materials
Terfenol-D Force Feedback
Exoskeletons for Human Performance
Projects will lead to self-powered, controlled, and wearable exoskeletal devices and/or machines and demonstrations of their utility in military

No, oh well, it didn't mine either...
