I found this on gfaqs earlier. It’s an excerpt from the Economist.
“Germany’s Prajekthaus System Soldat and Italy’s Soldato Futuro Initiative are beginning to discover ways to intigrate new technologies with organic creatures, to create a seamless partnership with living organisms. If it works, it will turn the modern tools of war into part-living, part-machine weapon. ‘Think of it as a BIPEDAL TANK, with living legs,’ says Eric Klausmann, head of the PSS.”(Sounds alot like the Gekkous)
"In the future, a soldeir’s skin will be clothed in a uniform made up of three layers. Closest to the skin will be a layer embedded with sensors that will detect when the wearer is injured, dehydrated, exhausted, or even asleep. For example, if the wearer is bleeding, the suit will ‘smartly’ apply pressure to the exact points necessary to stop the bleeding.
“The second layer will cary electro-textiles, such as new miniscule communications technology that will render radios obsolote. This is the first step in creating communications nanotechnology.” (Codec?)
“The third layer will provide pressure to certain places in the anatomy to maximize the function of internal organs.” (The first and third layer sound exactly like the functions of the Skull Suit and Sneaking Suit.)
"The Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an American military research organization, is putting massive funding behind the development of CYBERNETIC EXOSKELETONS, which would use extrenal hydraulics and pneumatic systems to endow soldiers with superhuman strength and agility, a bit like the abilities of feudal ninjas multiplied by 1,000. ‘Yes,’ states a research developer in DARPA, ‘I suppose you could think of this as a sort of CYBORG NINJA.’
