A real-life Iron Man – coming to a neighbourhood near you?

13 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Us military is testing an Iron Man prototype, the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit – perfect if you're about to be sprayed with bullets in the street

Name: Iron Man.

Appearance: Invincible combatant, more machine than man.

Age: 50, dating from his inaugural outing in the Marvel comic Tales of Suspense #39 back in March 1963. But in another sense, ageless.

In the sense that he's fictional? Yes, but perhaps not for long.

How's that? The Us military is currently preparing to test an Iron Man prototype.

Get out of here. It's no joke. Preliminary testing for the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit could begin as early as the summer.

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit? Also known as the Talos.

What will it be like? Remarkably like the Iron Man suit, with a "powered exoskeleton" and "situational awareness displays". It will eventually make use of "liquid armour" that could turn solid in »
