i thought this top be the most appropriate thread to post this in, and i would like some feedabck and ideas from you guys and gals.
I watched Iron Man on the weekend again, and man!!!
That suit and the technology. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to have this type of suit?
Now i know there will be guys that want to abuse and get nasty about the thread(probably) but i would like a civil discussion and ideas.
I’m not talking and don’t care about the exoskeleton suit the US military is developing. I’m talking about the real deal, like on Iron Man one.
Now obviously there are a couple of problems technology-wise.
1. power supply for the computers to run and simulate the muscle movements, Heads-Up-Display in the mask and voice enabled computing and
2. Secondly fuel supply for the fight boots, stabilizer beams and propulsion beams system.
Now obviously there are a couple of things to consider. The suits look and feel won’t be difficult to build and make look exactly as it is in the
movie, but it’s all about the technology, so let us start and look at our options.
1. Power supply to the suit for complex computer systems and muscle movement replication systems.
Now here there could be a couple of options, but all of them have various issues.
Option 1 Hydrogen Fuel cell. If it could be produced on this small a scale, could supply power for the suits computing systems. The problem is size
Option 2 Nuclear Fusion. Now here the main problems are a stable and retained reaction and heat insulation. The suit would have to be able to sustain
temps up to 20 000*C which is a lot
Option 3 Zero Point Energy supply system. Now about this I’m no expert, but maybe you guys can help out with this, I also believe(form what I
understand) could be the energy source that would suffice in supplying enough thereof for the fight boots, stabilizer beams and propulsion beams..
2. Fuel supply for Flight system
Now obviously assumptions have been made that the power and energy contained in a nuclear power plant is needed to supply enough power and energy for
this type of pulse rays, flight stabilizers and flight boots. (Not to mention the PLACE TO KEEP/PUT THE FUEL TO BURN for 2-3 hour long flight time
Now let’s bypass all the nuclear power, hydrogen power and look at Zero point energy.
I we could harvest Zero Point, (energy like the Arc/Ark Reactor in Iron Man) this would mean we have an unlimited amount of power/energy available to
us. Now if it were possible to transform this energy to act as a fuel, then we could have all the power, fuel needed to sustain and increase the
thrust potential of these fight boots and stabilizers.
I know there will be people that think this is insane and this type of suit would never be able to be built. But, I say if they can put a man on the
moon, they can build this type of suit.
So if there are any of you guys out there that would like to contribute in a good way…feel free, and let the gray matter throw around a few
chemicals and ideas on this type op suit
How will you power this suit and energy supply for sustained fight
