These technologies are tens of years away but they are possible with the right amount of budget. But since they are targeted for the military and civilians would probably never get to see them, I find it wasteful.

Pentagon scientists researching gene manipulation to build the soldiers of tomorrow

They hope to be able to trigger the cells of injured soldiers’ bodies to rebuild lost limbs

Tomorrow’s soldiers could be able to run at Olympic speeds and will be able to go for days without food or sleep, if new research into gene manipulation is successful. According to the U.S. Army’s plans for the future, their soldiers will be able to carry huge weights, live off their fat stores for extended periods and even regrow limbs blown apart by bombs. The plans were revealed by novelist Simon Conway, who was granted behind-the-scenes access to the Pentagon’s high-tech Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency.
