Full Body Armor

(Update: The inverntor tried to sell it on eBay) 

You probably don’t want to get me going on Iraq, but if the pentagon wanted to protect our boys, we would put them in this.

The whole suit comes in at 18 kilograms. It covers everything but the fingertips and the major joints, and could be mass-produced for about $2,000, Hurtubise says.

  1. Recently a new type of body armor made its debut on the new discovery channel show “Future Weapons.” The new armor, called Dragon Skin because of the unique interlocking plates that comprise the armor, is tough stuff. It’s flexible and can easily spread out the kinetic impact of a bullet because of the way its structured.

    The amazing thing about this new armor is that it stood up to everything they threw at it: all manner of assault rifles were fired into it and the armor seemed to suffer nothing more than cosmetic damage. It even stopped a frag grenade at point blank range and even though it took significant damage, there was ultimately no penetration.

    Equally amazing, however, is the shear idiocy with which it was developed. After spending who knows how much money developing this new “super armor” they have completley and utterly FAILED to actually innovate something like you, Mr. Burns.

    I am not a soldier, but will soon be required to register for the selective services. While I have no intention of joining the military, this issue does greatly concern me. What if the draft were ever reinstated? Where would that leave me? Even if your armor isn’t as durable… which I just realized I don’t know if it is or not, but even if it weren’t I would STILL wear your armor in the field if I were given the choice. I believe most soldiers would too.

    I will be submitting your armor to the Future Weapons site soon in the hopes that they will include it in their program. Dragon Skin? HA! Meet your better: the Trojan.

  3. Hi, I’m a U.S. Marine. I’ve been to Iraq and Afghanistan for the better part of a year now, and have experuence with the combat conditions of those countries. While this armor lookslike a perfect suit of futuristic perfection, there is no way me or any of my pals would ever wear this. Do you know how heavy our packs are? Around 40 or 50 pounds, and that’s a light pack. You couldn’t carry that and wear this armor, never mind all your ammo and your hydration pack. Plus, in a place where it’s 120 degrees from sun up to sun down, I don’t see anyone wearing this and running around in the desert heat. This would probably get more troops killed from heatsroke. We already get a ballistic vest, and about half the guys just throw it in the humvee because it’s so hot and heavy. And that’s just a vest, much less a full-body suit. So I don’t see this getting used anytime soon.

  4. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your website. It appears as though some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  5. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  6. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog. You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really
    like to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!

  7. What’s Taking place i’m new to this, I stumbled
    upon this I’ve discovered It absolutely useful and it has helped me out loads. I am hoping to contribute & aid different customers like its helped me. Great job.

  8. Hello there! I just would like to give you a huge thumbs up for your excellent information you have got here on this post.
    I’ll be coming back to your site for more soon.
