I remember reading an article somewhere ages ago that the US Military were working on something similar, so troops could do more without using as much energy (carrying more weight over longer distances without tiring the soldier as much).

The only thing I've found in a brief search was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_exoskeleton which is on wiki which I wanted to avoid. There was one on the bbc news site an age ago. Pretty impressive stuff though.

Think they need to make something to stop the larger round though, when a foot slogger becomes immune to .50 cal fire I think they'll be well on their way to Power Armour :-)

woop, here's the bbc one, 2001 :-)
