I am not a fan of DARPA and think they do a lot of unnecessary projects.  A scientist in Japan already has a suit that allows a person to have extra strength.  A suit with armor sounds like the mechwarriors in the old japanimation shows.

Thanks for your comment, Greg. I found that interesting as well, as it not just helps people heal faster it actually helps them create new tissue. Very helpful indeed, especially for applications like burn victims.

Meh, the military may call that the 'Iron Man' suit but I want one that looks and functions like the one in the movies. Complete with Jarvis too.

The nanotechnology drug delivery system was also one of my favorites.  Focused drug delivery with minimal disruption to surrounding healthy cells will also help improve treatment methods and possibly lower costs.

This will be the Ultimate Exercise Suit.   Just think how hard it is to get regular exercise.  How slow exoskeleton development has been.  The exercise market would give it a push.  This has all been about decreasing physical stress but the opposite must also be true.  The same technologies that assist you in climbing steers while recovering from an injury.  That same technology could oppose muscle movement on daily walks.  The UES would be use by astronauts to decrease the affect of micro gravity.   I am oppose to technology that weaken us.  UES would leave the user stronger after removing it.  Frankly Ultimate Exercise Suit I can see everyone.  

The defense market place is insignificant when compare to the civilian market.   Every sport team would want their athlete to wear UES when they are not on the field.   Insurance companies would want their clients to wear a UES.  That will protect them and strength them.  Insurance companies are the biggest beneficiary from health clients. 

The UES product development needs a push beyond the narrow perspective of the military.  I am surprise that Google, Microsoft or other tech giants are not running with this.  These technologies have the potential to make us better, as ubiquitous as clothing.  The UES would become clothing.

Fascinating stuff Liz. You always come up with something extra ordinary and surprise me. I am really excited about the technologies dealing with the brain. Projects like Recovering Active Memory and brain-to-brain interfacing are just out of this world. I am looking forward to how this all concludes, as brain is a very sensitive organ and it will be a remarkable achievement if we manage to heal and control it.
Perhaps one day i will be able to record my dreams and watch them when i wake up by just plugging a USB on my laptop.

No doubt all the mentioned technologies are really impressive and helpfull i but other than the tissue generation i also liked the medication for diseases like cancer that will only treat with harmfull cells without destroying other cells and immune system . This process will no doubt help the cancer patient suffering and will result in an healthy treatment as well.
