From Virtual Reality to Reality

Peep the prototype for the next-generation Korean combat uniform.  I found it on cnet news. The writer compares the look to the video game Halo.  Apparently, it acts like a video game.  The helmet’s bulletproof.  It’s got a minicam and other video features, GPS, and would be fully networked.  The new outfit is also designed to protect fighters aagainst nuclear, biological, and chemical attacks.  Wow!  But here’s the feature I like: It’s got its own air conditioner!  Yup, automatic temperature control.  I could put that to good use in Houston in the Summer.  So does that mean the Koreans will be able handle the North alone, and we can bring the rest of our troops home from there too?
