Researchers Give Congress Glimpse of Army's Future
The Defense Department gave Congress a look at the Army of the future during a "Soldiers Modernization Day" exhibit at the Russell Senate Office Building here June 16.
But most amazing, (Staff Sgt. Robert) Atkinson said, researchers are looking to use "nanotechnology" on the uniform to give soldiers superhuman strength. Electrical impulses sent to the human muscles will provide soldiers with extra strength, he said.
"Think of yourself on steroids. You can hold as much as you want for as long as you want," he explained. "The technology is there, and once we get it all in place the soldier will be unstoppable."
