    Default Bear Suit Inventor Breaks the Bank On New Invention

    I think this is ingenious......I've read several stories about the military trying to develop exoskeletons.......they will probably steal his ideas.

    I was flipping through the channels a few nights ago and I got to the Discovery Channel and they have a show that has this ex soldier that shows new weapons that are being invented. One of them was "Dragon Skin." This is like a bullet proof vest that can take like 50 times more damage than a regular vest. They shot it with everything and than blew it up and it was still intact. It was awsome.

    I saw that show. It was awesome. Last night they had a new mass rocket launcher.

    This is the best part of the article...
    You see, Troy -- inventor of such products as several well-documented bear suits, a fire-resistant paste, and a strange device that he claims can see through walls and skin -- spent $150,000 developing the Trojan (apparently his family's entire savings), along with 1,800 hours on everything from calibrating the helmet-mounted laser to designing the unique, um, crotch-mounted digital compass / world clock.
    Everybody wants to have a crotch mounted digital compass/world clock. This guy needs to come out with an underwear line.
