Leaving aside the soul bit (I'm not religious), the rest will be done sooner than you think. Well, assuming we want emotional computers, at any rate .

To give one real-world example, there was talk of a space-suit design that, when punctured, would leak a fluid, gel or something that would quickly plug the gap & stop the astronaut from suffering any serious problems. God only knows how good it could be though if you could use things like forcefields to do more complex or mechanically harder work though.

Not true in the case of military hardware though. I'm sure modern armies could deploy fancier gadgets than they do... but they'd break too easily & be too hard to repair. If Boeing were to go up to the DoD and announce "yeah we got tank armour at a reasonable price that self-repairs against light-to-medium weapons fire", DARPA would be... well interested to put it mildly.
More, once word got out that the military has its shiny new self-repair kits, it wouldn't surprise me if a chunk of the civilian market started asking for the same for certain applications. Probably not all (price and all that), but still...
