In Pictures: Most amazing war-related technology of 2014

Prototype combat underwear A suit without underwear is a like a day without sunshine. DARPA launched the Warrior Web project in September 2011, to create basically long underwear to “protect injury-prone areas by stabilizing and reducing stresses on joints and promoting efficient and safe movement over a wide range of activities” along with technologies “to augment the work of wearers’ own muscles.” And all using at most 100 watts of power. In 2014, the project’s goals include focusing on technologies for “core injury mitigation technologies; comprehensive analytical representations; regenerative actuation; adaptive sensing and control; and suit human-to-wearer interface.” It seems to be drawing on the DARPA-funded “Harvard Suit” project at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, and this photo is from that project.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
