    Hey I have the idea for a cyborg arm-type machine. It will be a metal piece that could fit over one of your arm's from your fingers up to your elbow. It would also be in the shape of your forearm, as if it were just an exoskeleton.

    The actions of this "arm" would be controlled by buttons and switches that could be pressed by your fingers. Here are a few of the things you would be able to use:

    1) A very strong electromagnet which could be turned on and off by a switch near your middle finger. This magnet would take up the majority of the metal arm and would have the copper coils tightly around the middle finger.

    2) All of the fingers would have almost miniature hydrolics in the so that when the pinky tightly holds down a switch, the hand would grip VERY tightly. For saftey precautions, there would be a saftey switch at the top of the arm for this.

    3) A green laser that would be turned on by pressing a switch with your ring finger. It would just be a normal pointer laser. Nothing more, nothing less.

    4) In the thumb compartment, there would be a sharp switch blade that could be sprung out by pressing a button with the thumb. This too would have a saftey switch.

    *If you have noticed, I have not used anything with the pointer finger. This would be used to help store the large electromagnet*

    Please post any suggestions or criticisms here.

    People have been working on this kind of thing for a while.

    Keep in mind this video is from over a year ago.


    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    I've heard about that suit and actually have seen it before.

    However, I am trying to create something a lot more light-weight that could actaully be put on the market and in the military in the next two years.

    In a speculative sense? Like you're writing a story and imagining what cool gadgets they'll have in the near future? Or do you mean in an engineering sense, where you're actually building this in the next 2 years. Because if it's the latter, you're severely underestimating the development time something like this would take.

    I use a special rapid developement strategy.....ie) me and mycompany wouldbe able to create this this within 2 years...obviously it would have some bugs, but it would be able to be made that quickly using that strategy.

    I am not trying to argue with you, for I respect your views and have read some of your other posts.

    If you have a team and process which let's you go from conception to production in 2 years, I laud you. But from my experience scheduling things I just don't see how it's possible. If the task were 100% well defined, and you had a team of people who'd done something similar in the past, then it's possible with a well oiled team and strong management. But there's so much of it that can't be scheduled very well, since you're going to have to invent a lot of new technology and software to run it.

    I agree with your suggest for MOST cases....but if you have enough man-power and need something done in a pceific amount of time, it WILL get done depending on how determined you are. I know very much what you mean, it is just there is a type of rapid development strategy where you have a decent, brainic group of people, lets say two for each field required, and you work your butts off for hours a day on just that project.....I do however see what you are saying.

    Do you have any other comments on the actual structure??? I need feedback.

    9 women can't make a baby in 1 month

    As to the actual design, I'd need to see some sketches to really picture it. I have a hard time seeing the switches everywhere as being ergonimical. My guy says it would be pretty cumbersome to use.

    Speaking of which, what's the primary use? Just a cool Inspector Gadget sort of thing where you throw everything you think is cool into a single piece of technology? Or is there a specific use case involved?

    To answer one of your questions, it would be just a cool gadget to fool around with. I guess that in a few more years it could be modified for military use.

    To answer your other question, I will try to get back to you with some sketches...basically its all in my head. Just a little piece of it is on paper. Give me like 3 days.
