The Canadian inventor whose bear-protection suit was immortalized in the documentary Project Grizzly has created a new set of body armour designed to deflect bullets and bombs, according to the Hamilton Spectator.
Troy Hurtubise's new armour calls to mind the armour of the protagonist in the video-game Halo. It's made of high-impact plastic lined with ceramic bullet protection over ballistic foam. Hurtubise said it can withstand the impact of bullets - and yes, even an elephant gun.
According to the story, the armour has a small recording device, a pepper-spray gun, a detachable transponder in its forearms, and a host of other features, including a clock attached to what could only be described as the cod-piece of the armour.
Hurtubise said the suit, which he dubs the Trojan, could be mass produced for $2,000 each and could be used by the military.
No word yet whether it can withstand Alien Needler guns.
