Really? Huh. Makes sense, though, on some levels. Without the license, it's just the tiniest fraction more difficult for lawbreakers to obtain the protection...And finely IF REAL do you have a license/permit to own heavy mil/law grade armor? YES, I did say are you authorized to own heavy bullet resistant armor.
Fun, frightening and unrealistic - a dream, indeed. Despite the perhaps absurd amount of technology, I am trying to keep myself grounded with regard to the level of advancement. There's no way I'm about to go "04, 43y 9uy5! 1'\/3 907 /\ 9r3/\7 1d3/\ =0r m/\<1n9 /\ 5413ld 5y573m!" That can't be done with today's level of technology, and I very well know it.The "dream" project cannot be done for multiple reason. When I was young and naive I could remember feeling how cool it was to be Iron Man - with an actual jet pack - and fly around.
Ahh...the sort of thing an occasional/casual lurker might not pick up on prior to registration. Thanks, CoolC.While there is no specific restrictions on "dream" thread, but it is common knowledge here that threads like this are discouraged. Most of the time the thread would start innocently. Then it would escalate into name throwing. At the end of the day, insult would get thrown.
Hence the intention to build a proof-of-concept instead of something actually up to MilSpec.Thread like this will not go anywhere. Discussion like this on our current military might will not go anywhere. The budget, the available technology in our military is beyond our control. As attested by Airoch that the brains our military couldn't come up with a working prototype. For a modeler to come up with an armor that satisfies the needs of the military is of course impossible.
Yes, sir! Although, if I may put in my own two bits, I think it would be better for naysayers to 'cut the crap' instead of those with ideas of how to help.Just enjoy building armor
It probably is possible, although it might be best to have it detect small children, as well (say 2' tall, ~50lbs.). That would prevent it from getting false positives from most small animals, but would still alert you to, say, a rabid boar or pack of animals when hunting or evading someone through the woods. Unfortunately, setting the response limit at that size would also prevent it from reporting grenades being thrown toward you from awkward angles.Would it be possible to program the radar to ignore anything moving that is smaller than a person? In that way, it wouldn't pick up leaves and bees, but larger things like horses, people, lions, and large animals that could also kill you, including vehicles as well.
An armor integrity bar. I could see that. The way you suggest it functioning would probably work, too.A "shield" system could be in place, but it only informs you of the status of your armor....
Hence the virtual uplink to Base. In fact, that would be less likely to report false alarms to Base than the medical leads alone, and it could work together with those leads for even greater accuracy.If a suit of military grade armor could work that way, then it could also automatically pinpoint where other troops should go (on their radar because their comrade's suit was damaged) and give a location to provide backup. It could also contact headquarters, and bring up a satellite image on a computer.
LOLAlso, this guy could be Warren Buffett for all we know, and have billions of dollars to put into producing this kind of system.
The math indeed mate. Well, as far as making it bullet resistant, the math will literally save your life, and it's also good for connecting the electronics (Ventrue and thatdecade are good in that field). Now you should get familiar with Newtonian mechanics, circuits, and chemistry. These will serve you well. We're all here to help.Thanks for the support, Josiah.
When you ask about the physics, do you mean the mathematical calculations? If so, not presently; if not, I have no idea. As for the resources, I'm planning to use storebought tech as much as possible to build the equipment, with the rest likely being home-crafted or commissioned circuits of personal design.
For the costume armor itself, I'm hoping to use foam patterns to make silicone moulds and cast into those, but I've been having trouble locating bulk sizes or quantities around Overland Park, Kansas.
That said, you do make a point regarding the traditional health bar, although it would likely be replaced in this system by the standard line graphs of the medical equipment. In either case, I suppose streaming the readout to the display might actually turn out useless or counterproductive.
you can actually get new filters pretty cheap at your local hardware store without buying a whole mask
It wouldn't have to be a secondary weapon. It could just as easily be his primary
He actually might hold the weapon up 'just for show' simply for the psychological response in his mind - I'm holding up the scope, so it's less jarring to suddenly see such distant environs so closely.
You mean that ugly concept that you're about the only one to keep mentioning and which I've been trying very hard to ignore in my work for a year or two?

Honestly people, lay off the guy. "Noobs" should be treated with respect (except the ones asking for armor of course XD).
Look Guys, for $400 you can have a real HUD display http://pointofviewcameras.com/transcend-spx-gps-display-goggles-by-zeal-optics.html
