Seen a cool bit of future tech?
'Twatter' it to your fellow designiks here.
Meet HULC™, the Human Universal Load Carrier.
i'm waiting of a hybrid of these two for a proper freak-out:
- holy shit! i'm going to have nightmares about the "bigdog".armsbottomer
- That big dog thing is fucking freaky. It's like they cut two dogs in half, and put that fcking metal box where their top halfs should beHoax
- be, facing face to face. it's creepy as fuck. errrrrrrrughh.hHoax
- I am fucked up on this now. David Lych meets Metal Gear Solid..Ironmonkey
- @ironmonkey SSSooo trueD4W33D
i cannot find the article right now but i read that some scientists are planning to genetically cross cows with spiders. the milk of the chimera is supposed to be spun. the gained yarn is said to be woven to bullet-proof vests. (i can't get rid of the idea that those cowders are going to redefine the meaning of world wide web).
- this is serious thread.Jnr_Madison
- Whoops, my bad. I saw Nairn started it and assumed it wasn't.JerseyRaindog
- My threads are generally pretty sensible - as are most contributions these days. Enough hapless jokers here.Nairn
- *sucks life right out of dialogue*Nairn
- Sorry, Jersey, it was just one of my hapless jokes.Jnr_Madison
- *backs out of thread apologising profusely to Nairn.JerseyRaindog
- HAHA. BUY NOW!akrokdesign
- Motherfucking time vampire, lol!5timuli
not quite scary but cool
rail gun tests
hmmm, seems like every single cool invention is used to kill, harm or for use in military service.
- Where do you think technology comes from? The military develops it, perfects it, kills people with it then releases it to the public.Hurley
- the publicHurley
- Military technology comes from misappropriated funds from public taxes for the financial gain of contractorsversion3
- they pay them?!ribit
"weaponized" is an fantastic adjective
K, it's more 'scary' in the sense that it's so utterly of The Future.
There have been murmerings of space-based power generation from orbiting solar catchment platforms (notably, by DARPA and the governments of India and Micronesia) for a while now.
Now, at last, a firm commitment has been made by a major American utilities firm to buy power from a company that intends to have the systems in place by 2016.
Given that gov'ts interest in zero-carbon power sources and promotion of space tech, this might actually get through regulatory hurdles.
It's the fucking future, man.
