I may have missed it in the watching, but did anyone mention that the “Circles on the leg” bit of this project was based wholly on the research of Arthur Iberall back in the late 60’s? I’d hate to think that the originator of the idea, who prototyped a suit during the project back then, would go unmentioned…

This idea is not new, but the materials science involved has improved dramatically in the 40+ years since this concept was first envisioned.
