    They needed to show how it takes bullets. Plus it`d look pretty intimidating and badass.

    Spent the whole video waiting to see him get shot or stabbed. Then in the last five seconds they show people hitting him with clubs. Less talk and more proof would have been good.

    Awesome. I saw something on the military channel about a similar suit the US is developing, it needs 15-20 years becuase it plans to have artificial muscle in it to supplant the maneuverability issues. this guys suit looks awesome no doubt it would probably save alot of lives. and no sane inventor would lie about the effectiveness of ones invention. a follow-up video with the suit being shot at would be awesome to see.

    It`s an awesome idea, but you`d think military R+D would be coming up with stuff like this first. They have the money and the brainpower, after all.
    Also...the Trojan?? Dude, you GOTTA come up with a better name. If you really want to emulate HALO, call it the Spartan. Or Mjolnir. Just not...Trojan. Seriously.

    *groan* Its called dragon scales. Full body armor lighter and more flexible than Kevlar. It can also cover the entire body, rather than solid armors that can only cover parts. Its completely soft until it gets hit, then it goes rigid for a second, and repells the bullet. This guy here is just wako.

    That pretty damn cool, but the US and other countries are already working on much more advanced gear. The U.S. is already paying MIT to come up with a suit that deflects bullets, protects against chemical agents, grants superhuman strength and makes the soldier invisible.

    "first body suit of armour" so what do they call metal suits in medival times then? lol

    I saw in "nuts" mag a suit like that but looked much colour, probs cause it was being researched in the UK so we had more money going into coolness :P

    Bwahahaha does it have to be quite to "power rangers"? Regardless of how effective this suit may be at deflecting bullets, this man looks like a tw*t and is obviously a fantasist. Can you imaging trying to stealthly search narrow bombed out corridors equipped with massive fake plastic shoulder muscles?

    "The U.S. is already paying MIT to come up with a suit that deflects bullets, protects against chemical agents, grants superhuman strength and makes the soldier invisible."

    Great, trigger happy trailer-trash meets Predator. We are all doomed. Does it come with a built in banjo?

    You guys all say that it`s inefficient technology, behind in the times, etc. etc. But look at the facts, a CANADIAN inventor comes up with something that can probably be fairly easily mass produced and is marketable right now. If you`re a soldier, you`re not gonna wanna wait an extra 15-20 years for this "dragon skin" suit.

    If you`ve ever seen the stuff the original bear suit he kept reffering to, the material is very bullet proof and very light weight. Obviously the suit needs a lot of work from some military engineers, but it is for the most part rather impressive for something built at home by this one guy and his friends.

    phroedoux: "Its called dragon scales. Full body armor lighter and more flexible than Kevlar. It can also cover the entire body, rather than solid armors that can only cover parts. Its completely soft until it gets hit, then it goes rigid for a second, and repells the bullet." With a shell like this, you would barely even feel the bullet, when that dragon scale stuff deflects the bullet, it`s going to hurt like a mofo, and someone can still break your arm or knock you out by hitting you with a bat, it`s basically advanced chain mail, which was used under plate armor in the medieval ages because stuff couldn`t pierce it (like your dragon scale stuff) but it didn`t really help blunt blows. Same concept with the dragin scales and this suit thing.
