Exoskeletons & genetic engineering for soldiers of the future

Militaries around the world have a vision for the soldier of the future: Where humans reach their limits, modern technologies such as exoskeletons and genetic engineering are supposed to give them superhuman strength. What is being researched in the laboratories of defense companies - and where it has already been tested.

The inspiration for exoskeletons is nature, or more precisely the world of insects: Unlike vertebrates, this group of animals does not have its skeleton inside the body, but wears it on the outside. This has advantages that humans want to take advantage of: exoskeletons are armor and support structure in one. Armor companies and armies hope to transfer this to humans and thus gain an advantage.
