Walt Disney was asked by the millitary to build an Iron Man like suit?!

So it would seem.  From the pages of Paleofuture, the US military did in fact approach Walt Disney with a request to help develop  a powered exoskeleton with very specific capabilities.  

The Navy sent a request for proposals to Disney in hopes that he could produce a complex device to be worn by a man that would enable him to lift 1500 pounds to a height of six feet and carry that load twenty-five feet in ten seconds. Very ambitious even by today's standards. 

Disney however had very little interest in the project. 

Check out the Paleofuture article HERE for Walt's response and more.
