Super trooper on march
THE bionic man of science-fiction is a vision of real-life warfare in the 21st century.
United States defence chiefs hope to have their troops kitted out in the outlandish combat gear as soon as 2020.
The Pentagon's Future Warrior would wear a powerful exoskeleton, a self-camouflaging outer layer that adapts to changing environments, and a helmet translating the soldier's voice into any language.
Some blueprints must await advances in nanotechnology, but researchers are confident.
