a new robotic suit, plus some enhancements

In the news, a man has created the world’s smallest helicopter.  I’d like one of these.  It sure would be an easy way to get around town!

And while I’m dreaming, I’d like to combine it with this exoskeleton robotic suit that the military has developed.  It multiples your strength and endurance by as many as 20 times.  The microprocessors in this suit can respond in almost real-time, so it actually follows your natural movements.

They both have battery life of about 30 minutes, which isn’t enough for the plans I have.  I’d want to add some type of pulse laser or plasma gun to it, but those really drain the power quickly!  I’m thinking they need to employ some type of mini-fusion reactor (in a bulletproof case, of course).  I’d also want a taser feature, with variable power control from “that tickles” to “that ain’t right”.  I’d also want a rapid-fire launcher that can be equipped with various projectiles such as potatoes or grenades.  And this suit should include a tea-maker.  🙂

What kind of add-ons would you want in a robotic suit?

    The butt exhaust fan (B.E.F.) is a great idea. Otherwise, it would get powerfully wrong being trapped in an airtight suit.

    Oh, an a GPS system. You have no idea how embarassing it is to have to ask for directions wearing a robo-suit.

    I’d like to be able to take the helicopter blades, fold them in half to make them shorter, and put them on your wrist, where they can spin very quickly and cut through almost anything.

    A flamethrower would also be convenient.

    And the B.E.F. should be high-powered, where it could shoot a beam of air at a target at a distance. That might come in handy in a few situations.

    I’d like to be able to create subsonic bass waves that are below 20 Hz, where you can’t hear them but they shake everything nearby, even the ground.

    If the suit enables you to brew tea on demand and automatically add enough sugar to it, that would add to your popularity. And it would save you a lot of money at restaurants and ballgames!

    Regarding the B.E.F. (butt exhaust fan), you never mentioned the smell! It would be highly convenient for the wearer, but not the people around him!

    And if certain people’s flatulence was amplified, that might require legislation for everyone’s safety… either way, it’s a bad idea!
