    Yep sorry have had a few major life roadblocks get in the way of the project... hopefully will have time again soon, things have been a disaster lately.

    Plan for an ambitious project...

    HUD's are actually really easy to make yourself, you just need a LED, a LCD display with the variables you want to display, and a lens, the visor will act as the reflective surface. If you have a good understanding of optics, you could make one for about $20. What kind of programming do you...

    I printed out the pep for the H2 ODST helmet as a base layer to work with, and im going to mod it by hand, basically cut the top part off from the visor to the middle of the helmet, and make a different version that matches the taper of the jaw guard, that's on a pivot, so the visor can be...

    hmm my previous post didnt go though. I tried to print out some files in pepakura, came back, and there were 15 pages of solid black cardstock. No clue why. Finally got it working and printed out the patterns for a helmet, and taped them together to use as a sheet metal cutout pattern. With any...

    Heres a digital sketchup of what I'm thinking for the load bearing core, also functioning as the air transport system, as well as an additional level of impact resistance for vital areas. The compressive suit would have areas highly reinforced, and harness like webbing, so that you are totally...

    And yea I have some drawings but I need to digitize them. Basically the load bearing 'bones' are going to be hollow, and interlinked, so they also act as the air ducts.

    The price would vary depending on how much tech is packed into it. There obviously could be different models, but it would be safe to say, that as soon as the technology was viable, that special forces would have it first, and they would have the version thats got the highest specs crammed into...

    No problem, I just see red every time I see that suit. There have been a lot of situations in life were I've wound up having to work 10 times as hard to do something, because someone else made such a mess of the idea and completely killed interest in the area, by generating a ton of publicity...

    I would still like a classic halo style costume, but like I said, I dont have time to build a fancy toy, nothing really functional could be made from a halo costume. This project however is not to build a toy. And that guys suit isnt anything more than a hodgepodge nightmare of modified...

    Ok, well lets for arguments sake, assume, that if a soldier gets to wear a multi million dollar super suit, they are going to have whatever advanced weapon systems they want. There are also long eye relief scopes that have iron sights built on top of them for higher clearance. I'm actually...

    Why does everyone assume that when someone wants to take over the world that its a bad thing? lol I've drawn up a quick build steel load bearing exoskeleton and I think I will begin building it tomorrow, starting with the hips and legs. From that material can be added to bulk it up to a shape...

    Yep Holographic sights are the way to go. Eventually I'd like to do something like combine a rifle with a precision wii remote, and have a video HUD overlay system project a dot on the visor where the gun is pointing, no matter where you are holding it, or an arrow of varying size pointing in...

    Ha yea, well I can gaurentee it wont have a gold visor thats for sure. I'm not sure how exactly the normal halo helmet is as far as view goes, I'd suspect since most of them are yanked from game models that they never were designed for actual human use, you can make a helmet that has minimal...

    I dont think the system will limit motion any more or less than current military body armor. When you're wearing an armor carrier with neck flaps, and have a helmet on, your range of motion is limited to the extent that you'd want to move in combat. for example if you get hit in the head with...
