I wonder if the military might get smart and start watching movies like Aliens. Could've built that system years ago, with the addition of body armor.

Absolutely useless in any situation (which is most if not all) where you have to take cover or lie down or crawl along the ground.

As I said, for an infantry regiment that wants to be mobile, it's useless.

It's just a steady-cam harness. But I bet it costs 10 times as much, lol.

This could give the military's "Short arm inspection" a whole new meaning! :whistle:

A split-harness over the soldiers shoulders and attached to a lower back-belt with upper thigh straps seems would be better.
