Armor Concept, by Ethan Kocak
Ethan Kocak, artist and writer for The Black Mudpuppy. Here’s the description from his website:
The comic tells the story of a would be Aztec god, known as Xolotl. Xolotl is the God of Fire and the Underworld in Aztec mythology. He’s kind of a jerk in this story though, so he’s banished into the body of an axolotl for 491 years, at which point he is semi-freed under the condition that he has to do good deeds for mortals in order to earn back his full powers.
It’s quirky, odd, random, violent, and very entertaining. My favorite character is definitely the Hitlersaurus. Ethan is telling a great, fun story with interesting characters and art, so I’d recommend you check it out.
Powered Armor – Part 3: Project Oracle
In this third and final (for now) discussion on Minerva’s Powered Armor technology, we will focus on the technology in use on Project Oracle, as this is the most cutting edge fusion of Minerva’s technology into a combat initiative. Project Oracle is in early phases of beta testing, and a unit has been assigned to each Squad Captain The unit consists of many layers of cutting edge combat tech, and is controlled and maintained by an advanced Bio-Mechanical Artificial Intelligence. The concepts we will cover in this expose will be cleared through Oculus to make sure no sensitive information is exposed, but we propose to cover the following in sequence: Inner sensor and medical suit, scaffolding weight assist, muscular motive assist, sheathing and power, control, and armor/protection.
Towards a soldier with invisible, self-healing armor
I read two articles recently that I thought were awesome, and that have direct application on the science of our story: functional invisibility cloaks and self-healing armor. I don’t want to steal too much thunder from the Science section posts that will cover how Minerva will use this tech, but allow me to explain briefly what this current advance in tech entails.
Powered Armor – Part 2: 21st Century Tech
Today’s continuation of our discussion of Powered Armor will focus around the existing technology in the 21st century and the limitations that this technology presents, as well as some conceptions of powered armor in popular media of the time. Lets get right into it shall we?
