It used to be that super soldiers were just the stuff of science fiction but now it seems they are coming to life. Indeed, engineers are coming up with all kinds of innovations to upgrade soldiers from robotic exoskeletons that give super strength to jet packs that will allow soldiers to fly into battle.

One such super cool invention is an implantable device that can fight off jetlag. The device, manufactured by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, would allow soldiers to travel as far as they wish without ever needing to take time to adjust to their new environment.

This would mean that as soon as they landed in their new location, they would be ready for their mission. Another cool military invention is the JTARV, meaning the Joint Tactical Aerial Resupply Vehicle.


It's a hoverboard that can be mounted for quick transport through the air, flown autonomously or piloted remotely. This makes it ideal for dropping off cargo or extracting soldiers from dangerous unmanageable situations.

These are just a few of the inventions that are giving soldiers superpowers. To learn more, make sure to watch our video and learn all about the amazing advancements you won't believe are real.
