Straight out of the X-files

I just read an article at Salon.com about the soldier of the future, who will be aided by nanotechnology and turned into, in essence, a supersoldier. Whoa...

"Based simply on the projects posted for public consumption, the ISN is busy creating a soldier of the future who will be protected by an impregnable exoskeleton. This 21st century armor will also impart superhuman strength, reflexes and endurance. It will sense its environment with molecular precision and administer chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other potions directly to the human inside based on pre-programmed stimuli or other command and control signals (global satellite phone link to headquarters ... a battle computer in geosynchronous orbit ... HAL?). It kind of makes one long for the old 'mineshaft gap' of the Cold War."
