Great breakthrough as far as the "skin out" soldier platform is concerned. The more stuff they integrate into uniforms and gear the less a soldier has to carry. Think of what the temperature controlled and PAN outfitted uniform would do. Regulate body temp and give soldiers an edge over temperature and climate on the battlefield. Weapon, commo, GPS, targeting, and Intel hardware will have a vehicle to communicate without having to add extra hardware, power, etc. Plug-n-play soldier. Cool.

Actually no...it'll only mean that he can carry more 'other stuff'. ;)

I kid you not but there are already electrically heated socks. I want to find someone who has them and make them walk through a puddle.

Just more high tech sh*t that'll crap out on you right when you don't need it to.
