US military implements Iron Man suit in Armory

The government shutdown of 2013′s effect on the Iron Man suit is nonexistent. The military is still planning to push for the technological marvel that could eliminate US casualties in future overseas wars.
As previously reported the military is really trying to get a remarkable new Iron Man suit created and sent to Afghanistan for testing. What this suit incorporates is an exoskeleton over a liquid metal body suit, meaning that whoever wears it is armored and protected from enemy gunfire.
The suit is being officially named TALOS, or Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, and the military is pushing for MIT to come up with the liquid metal suit which will enhance movement, heat or air condition the soldier inside, and even treat wounds, effectively turning soldiers overseas into the real life Iron Man equivalents.
According to the press release about the liquid metal portion of the TALOS suit, “Liquid [turns to] to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied.”

In spite of the government shutdown of 2013, the Iron Man suit is still underway. Of course, this coincides with the previously stated fact that the government has shut down all nonessential functions including parks and such.
