The US Army is already the top tech equipped army in the world. But it wants more now. US Army is now planning to give its soldiers the "superhuman strength" that is owned by super heroes of movies till now. Yes, the US Army is now working to build such smart armour suits like 'Iron Man' wears in the movie.

The US Army has called upon different tech firms, "government labs and academia to help build the Iron Man-style suit," according to BBC News. Army wants to add smart material layers in this powerful suit. Sensors will be embedded in this smart material. 

The suit is called Talos which is an abbreviation of The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit. The sensors that are fitted in the smart material fitted will monitor hydration levels, body temperature and heart rate of the soldiers.

The exoskeleton of Talos will increase strength using hydraulics attached to arms and legs. This will make soldiers able to carry heavy weights. But Talos will require a wearable computer and WAN to work like Google Glass

A science adviser at the US Army's research, development and engineering command, Lt Col Karl Borjes, said, "The requirement is a comprehensive family of systems in a combat armour suit where we bring together an exoskeleton with innovative armour, displays for power monitoring, health monitoring, and integrating a weapon into that."

He also said, "It's advanced armour. It's communications, antennas. It's cognitive performance. It's sensors, miniature-type circuits. That's all going to fit in here, too."
