The New World Wars

The New World Wars

Forget The Bionic Man, and don’t be worrying about anthrax. The future of warfare is evolutionary, and it’s a lot closer than you’d think – if, indeed, it hasn’t already begun: The most realistic future biomods apocalypse is one in which a hostile foreign government or terror group finds ways to subtly change a lot of people.

Greater Protection, Mobility For Warriors, Police

The liquid metal body armor widely popularized in the movie, “Terminator 2″ is now in production at BAE. Conventional body armor, consisting of Kevlar and ceramic plates, is not only heavy, but impedes mobility. Moreover, as it doesn’t disperse impact, a direct hit can still result in serious injury.
