News Byte: New U.S. Army Helmet Takes a Cue From Video Games

NewsBytelogo

A new futuristic helmet is currently being tested by the US Army, and it looks like something straight out of Halo or Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It’s called the Helmet Electronics and Display System-Upgradeable Protection. This new helmet comes complete with facial protection plating (9mm thick) and even a Heads-Up Display !(also a proprietary name). The high-tech helmet has been in development for four years at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center. It probably goes without saying that the intent here was to provide the wearer with better protection and more tools at their disposal.

Well we’ve finally go the cool video game helmet, now all we need is the powered armor.

    It’s pretty cool, but I am not exactly sure the military needs to spend more money trying to be more like video games. ha
