A new BBC article is out today on MIT's Institute for Soldier Nanotechnology which is working on Heinlein-like powered body armor for human soldiers.

Both of these topics have been reported on previously but there's a lot of interest lately due to the continued Islamic terrorism around the world and the latest meltdown in the Middle East.
