Prototype Iron Man suit due in June Three unpowered prototypes of what’s being informally called the Iron Man suit, after the one worn by Marvel Comics superhero and ubergeek Tony Stark, are now being assembled for delivery in June 2014 to U.S. Special Operations Command. Formally known as the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS), the idea is to build an assault suit with “enhanced mobility and protection technologies,” with embedded antennas, computers, sensors to “increase the wearer’s situational awareness by providing user-friendly and real-time battlefield information.” It’s all just bits and pieces, but SOC has successfully completed this animated video of TALOS, from which this screen grab is taken. It’s just nowhere as slick as what the private sector has already delivered.
