Man developes Halo-like military suit


Halo-like military suitGamers will not have a hard time recognizing the suit on the left side – of course it looks like something from the computer game Halo. Troy Hurtubise, a locally well known inventor from Hamilton (Canada), has spent two years and $15,000 of his own money developing this and claims that is has been tested in ballistic test – and withheld bullets from several weapon types – and is willing to participate in live test with him wearing the suit. He hopes that he will create enough publicity to start talks with police forces and the military, as he claims the suit is able to be produced for around $2000 in mass production. If this really works he might have revolutionized military uniforms.

He says that he drew inspiration from Star Wars, RoboCop, Batman and . Some of the features are that it is completely bulletproof by using “high-impact plastic lined with ceramic bullet protection over ballistic foam”, it has pockets for emergency morphine and salt as well as a flashlight. And don’t forget the emergency transponder…

This is a piece of amazing gear, sadly for military purposes.
I would love to see this kind of person using there genius for inventing stuff to protect mankind and not just soldiers.

  1. That suit is too bulky. It will take like an hour to remove. And in barb wire it will get stuck. Branches and other stuff will get stuck in those shoes and you will fall. The designer did not thought about that. Armor should be light and flexible.
