The Crysis Nanosuit transforms its wearer into the ultimate weapon. It's at the centre of one my favourite first person shooter series, and aside from being a great gameplay mechanic, it's also a fascinating piece of science fiction. With the suit set to return early next year in Crysis 3, now seems a good a time as any to investigate whether science could actually build a tank-in-a-tux garment for the soldiers of today.
