"I think an exo suite will do wonders. look at some of the video games they have came up with some pratical designs. halo for one. mech assualt2 is another one look at the battle armor in the game that would work and it can be produce very easily. Now what kind of material would this exosuite need? titanium? some kind of harden alluminium? stainless steel coated with kelivar? and what about internal temp. would there need to be some kind of heating and cooling system to maintain the soldiers temp and their ability to focus? what about a direct link between brain and computer to speed up reaction time?"

"One of my favorite animés had a really great intro sequence: MADOX-01 | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7T-6ThKoJ0"

"That's really great - I'm going to put that on the article page. Thanks, Chris."

"Actually, the first reference is in E.E. Smith's novels of the 50s. Kinneson (the hero) is always in and out of his "powered armor"..."
(Ed 4/21/2008 2:36:13 PM )
"Actually, Ed, it's from Triplanetary, Smith's 1934 novel. I think I have the reference ...[rummaging]... ah, yes, see space-armor. Thanks for pointing it out. ;-)"

"Well...the anime is pretty nice, but unfortunately it doesn't say anything at all about REALITY."
(Rich 4/24/2008 11:02:54 AM )
""But the high-impact crash had not been kind to the armored suit. It had been crueler still to the bone, blood, and tendon housed inside." See, now, this was my main gripe with Iron Man — decelerating from 700-to-0 in half a second is gonna turn anything inside into a fine paste."
