Power Sources For Cyborg Soldiers

New Power Sources Needed For Soldier Of The Future

My. God. This little aside way down the page is more than a little scary. Maybe the exoskeleton could also incorporate a poop-holder so they could attract flies and power themselves. Problem solved. And maybe it'd be the end of war too. Give peace a chance, cyborgs!

"Other devices designed to enhance soldiers' performance on the battlefield use even more power, requiring between 1 and 5 kilowatts. For example, the 'exoskeleton,' which consists of a pair of mechanical metal leg braces and a backpack-like frame, literally takes the load off a soldier's back, allowing him or her to carry large or heavy packs without losing agility. To power such energy-intensive equipment, the Army should consider use of lightweight engine generators, the report says."
