    And all you need is a noisy vacuum on your back to get those stealth kills...

    A wide range of uses including stealthy and covert ops? Ya, when I want to sneak about the house I strap a shop-vac on my back, flip it on, and BAM no one knows where I am.

    Exactly. Then you can slip away under cover of afternoon never to be seen by the enemy.

    Also, walls are not always that flat, so you might have problems with the suction.

    "Stealthy, covert ops" Yeah right! With a couple of vacuum cleaners strapped to your hands, nobody`s gonna hear you coming, right?

    The first thing was obvious to many. My hope would be that a project like this would give us a much quieter vacuum pump if nothing else.

    Really nice idea, though I don`t see it working in a combat situation, way too loud.

    I`m sure they`ll be able to improve it and get the noise down. Even if they can`t and the stealth side is out, it will still have a lot of uses.
