Military and private companies around the world are developing new technologies that transform the military into a super-soldier.

The Russian military is developing motorized body armor that appears to belong to Boba Fett from Star Wars. And the hoverboard is not just something from Back to the Future, it is a real invention that Franchi Zapata of France successfully used to go to the English Channel this week.
