...das ist doch mal was schönes: e-mails lesen, während man den Gegner
Na, hoffentlich geht denen dann die Batterie im entscheidenden Moment nicht

Aber im Ernst: Langsam beginne ich zu überlegen, ob man sich nicht mal die
ganzen Niederlagen technisch hoch überlegener Armeen gegen steinzeitlich

> High-Tech Uniform For Troops
> By Ben Fenton
> US Army scientists are working on a uniform that would change colour to
> camouflage the soldier wearing it, protect him from bullets and report any
> injuries to nearby medical staff.
> The Scorpion "high-speed combat uniform" would use tiny devices implanted
> in the fabric of the uniform. These would include integral antennae
> allowing the soldier to receive emails and precise information about his
> and his enemy's. 
> Minuscule light-emitting particles in the fabric would be able to sense
> the colour and texture of the immediate area and change colour to blend
> Scientists believe that they can make a fabric that would be flexible, but
> very difficult to penetrate.
> Microscopic computers composed of nanotubes and other "nano-devices" would
> allow the uniform to monitor the vital signs of its wearer and report back
> to medics off the battlefield, allowing them to decide which soldiers
> needed to be treated first.
> Scorpion is expected to be in service by about 2010, according to Jerry
> Whitaker, public affairs officer at the US Army Soldier Systems Centre
> in Natick, Massachusetts.
