    I thought Al was working on porn rays is that another idea he has been cheated out off?

    Finding the right longitudinal scalar resonance has proved ... er... challenging.

    Although I understand there's a little blue pill for that.

    I think what's missing in the filmic landscape is something done in the style of Ed Woods that's an extreme Barbarella flick. Flesh Gordon meets Plan 9, with a young Fonda

    If I designed a exoskeleton it would have hidden secrets, like ultra sonic and microwave beamers which would target and stimulate the erogenous zones of an attractive woman, this must be a secret for us males.

    Even ugly men like Andrew could get laid.

    It seems the plan is to make the few remaining humans in the car factory into robots


    "We've shown that muscle activity in the back, shoulder and knees drops by 50%," he says. "If muscle activities drop, that means the risk of muscle injury is less.

    "This means that factory or plant managers get more productivity, their insurance costs are lower, and there are less workdays lost to injury. There's less cost and more productivity."

    General Motors is also looking at a battery-powered exoskeleton glove developed by Swedish firm Bioservo.

    This glove, called the Iron Hand, has sensors and motors in each finger, which automatically respond to the level of force that the wearer applies to his or her hand when lifting or gripping something. The glove therefore takes up some of the strain.


    Great!


    BioServo says it can increase the wearer's hand strength by 20% for extended periods.

    Wow! They should reboot the Iron Man movies with this suit. Instead of fighting off invading aliens he could go about helping people get the lids of jars.

    I think it would be safe to say that the military has a substantial interest in this technology.

    No. This layer replaces the image intensifier tube right enough but you still have to form an IR image on it and then focus that image into your eye. That's two sets of lenses between you and the scene. All you will see is what the gadget shows you, same as before. Maybe it's lighter thsn the image intensifier but it does need a pump laser.
