backpack

The Rapid Armor Deployment Pack is intended to allow one to become a true Sheepdog. You can go from being an average unnoticed citizen and in under 2 seconds deploy a full armor system with a weapon giving you an unexpected advantage over would be shooters or assailants.

My eyes rolled so fast it hurt when I read “Sheepdog”… regardless, this looks very high speed low drag.

It’s available for only $229 on the Ares Armor website (HERE).  No plates of course, but that still seems like a pretty decent price.

What sounds like a chainsaw, walks like it’s drunk, and looks like a headless centaur with backwards rear legs carrying some packs?

This robot that is being developed for the Military:

Seems to work pretty damn well.. a bit rigid but I guess that is to be expected at this point in the game.

If you weren’t creeped out enough by that first one, check out this headless wonder:

I no longer want a segway for sniper practice.  I want a gang of the above robots to run around with bottles of tannerite attempting to dodge my bullets.
