Mommy, buy me that...
Dude, how much fucking trouble could we get in with something like that.

Of course, they published the weakness in that article. Just aim for major joints. I'm assuming they mean shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. All critical strike points and even a glancing blast there would be very detrimental to mobility.

I do wonder how well it withstands blast damage though. Can you survive a grenade blast from 10 meters in it? That could be useful, and it looks considerably less bulky than the current bomb-disposal armor. That and the helmet is just cool looking, like something out of Starship Troopers (the book, no the movie).
Though he does look a lot like Cyrax from Mortal Combat.

Even if the .gov doesn't buy these things, someone, somewhere (defense contractor, military supplier, armor manufacturer) needs to buy up his designs and market these things.

My internet connection no likee page.

But really, I see enough to know that this would entirely change the dynamic between my co-workers and me. I so need one.

good for a very short mission, perhaps. You'll need something that you won't boil inside in the desert...maybe some solar powered cooling systems?
