Submission + - Robocop-like Soliders by 2020

zyl0x writes: The UK's Daily Mail is reporting on a new bionic warrior for the American Infantry. The DoD hopes to have these babies out as soon as 2020. From the article:

Included in the Pentagon's Future Warrior Concept are a powerful exoskeleton, a self-camouflaging outer layer that adapts to changing environments and a helmet which translates a soldier's voice into any foreign language... If the U.S. military's vision of the future is even half-right, Britain's armed forces will have their work cut out trying to keep up.
Anyone else feel like playing some Crackdown?
