Emerging technologies shape future soldier uniform
The US Army's Natick soldier Center in Massachusetts presented a model of what could be the Army uniform of the future during the 24th Army Science Conference.
The black fabric of the form-fitting suit would be manufactured using nanotechnology, which involves manipulating atoms and molecules to create things at the nanometer scale. soldiers wearing the suit would have the ability to blend into any environment, like a chameleon.
