The Hero of Iron Man is not the damaged man nor is it the powerful suit; it is the combining of the two.
A noble purpose to protect those whom he put in harms way inspired and drove the main character of the movie Iron Man
Damaged and always near death he is perpetually on life support.
His life of little to no value.
Once great now not much more than worthless.
But combine him with the state of the art suit you have a hero !
There is NO competition !!
There is no competition !
But you ask what does this have to do with computers?
For the military
For the civilian community
The processors for these exoskeletons (and it takes a lot of them)are the size of a half dollar and cost $350 to $500 each and consume 60 to 80 watts !
Requiring a massive power supply!
Everything is going to change;
our cellphones, cars, appliances, computers, communication networks
but the most impressive is robotics!
Eleven of these (unpackaged) will fit on a penny !
Does this mean the next Iron Man will be Bill Gates?
but what it does mean is that soon the word “handicapped” will not describe someone less capable but one “technically enhanced” !
Enjoy the future !
Its coming to a persons life near to you! 🙂
