This is stupid.

The correct wording is "this is ASU"

SolRo - 2014-09-15
my brain filtered that out.

This is an amazing accomplishment for ASU! You're so smart! You all get gold stickers!

Stars for SolRo self-congratulating himself about something again.

The amount of time actually shaved off a mile run is too easy a target, so I'll set that aside.

They mention soldiers using this to get in and out of sensitive areas. I don't think a large shrieking backpack that makes you a tiny bit faster is an advantage.

In ten years a jet pack like this will help someone in power armor scoot up hills or dash into cover.

Desperately seeking DARPA funding. They may have better luck with a fighting force that needs research in how to run away more effectively.

Also dude reminds me of Hanover from Heavy Metal the movie.

This would have been great at Gallipoli

craptacular - 2014-09-15
first 30 seconds and they admit that everyone wants a jetpack that lets them fly, but theirs isn't flight viable. color me disinterested.

Clearly the next step in human evolution.

Designed by people who have no idea what being a soldier is like.

it's like getting Starseige Tribes to run on a 486.

5 for glitter boy, 3 for underwhelming vid

Oh my god, this is a promotional video for ASU? THIS WAS THE BRILLIANT SHOWCASE THEY COULD COME UP WITH

"We found we could get n-....errr people to run faster by dragging them with a truck. So then the question became, do we apply the force using a truck, or do we build an exoskeleton jetpack?"

The presenter speaks like every dimwitted person I've met trying to sound smart.

You underestimate how impressive this seems to MBAs looking to go back to school for a real degree.

Phase II: Internal jetpack with the force directed out of the anus. Smokescreen optional.

ASU where the only requirement for entrance is having a pulse.
Old People - 2014-09-16
Umm no, more like a SAMAS. Duh!

So DARPA was hoping for some kind of super-soldier exo-skeletons, and they end up with some asshole with model airplane turbines strapped to his back?
