I'm seeking the name/episode of the a sci-fi drama/movie, where a man is given a beetle style amulet, he then travels somewhere. When he arrives in the place required, he presses the amulet, against his skin and the body gains an armor, all over his skin.

By chance did he travel on motorcycle? I seem to have a vague memory of a similar kid's TV show from the 90's. – druciferre Jul 20 '13 at 14:59

You could be talking about Season 10 and beyond of Smallville, and more specifically the character of Jaime Reyes, aka the Blue Beetle. Although the character itself, that of Jaime Reyes, has appeared in two other series as well. He apparently started off as a DC Comics character in 2006, but the Blue Beetle concept itself started in 1939.

At least, the beetle applied to the person that armors him fits this description.

I believe there was an episode of Stargate: Altalntis where Dr. Rodney McKay has an amulate of some sort which provides him a shield. The only problem is, he cannot eat/drink with it on and he cannot turn it off, either. It is a Real predicament for him since he is supposedly hypoglycemic (and a hypochondriac as well). I don't know which season/episode this is from as it has been a while.
