There’s impressive new military technology under development at theÂ Army’s Soldier Systems Center in Natick, Massachusetts. It was recently featured in an article in The New York Post. In short, it’s a suit of high-tech armor designed to turn tomorrow’s fighters into more of a system than a soldier.
Some of the system’s features include a HUD inside the helmet, voice commands that unlock a weapon or set it to less than lethal force, a powered exoskeleton to increase a soldier’s movement capabilities and endurance and even “neural prosthetics” and “drugs that aid cognitive ability.” The army concedes that the latter enhancements might be “controversial now, but perhaps ubiquitous in 2030.”
It looks a bit dorky right now if you ask me but I’m sure as it improves and advances they will make it a bit more interesting and intimidating.
According to this Gamespot report, Sony is going to pull the plug on the epic failure that was The Matrix Online on July 31. I honestly didn’t even know that it was still online, so this was an odd bit of news for me. The game seemed doomed from the very beginning, sadly. I thought that it might have potential back when it was first announced at E3 in 2002.
They apparently celebrate goals in their own special way.
We just watched Crank: High Voltage. I should have known better. Any movie with a tag line like, “He was dead… but he got better,” is bound to be a failure of epic proportions.
I guess I was hoping that Jason Statham might bring something new to the table. I was wrong. Dead wrong.
I’m honestly still trying to figure out what exactly the fuck it was that I just saw over the course of the past two hours. High Voltage is, without question, one of the strangest movies that I have ever seen. It was so chopped together, so disconnected, and so random at points that I found myself literally saying, “What the fuck is going on?” out loud during several scenes. I did laugh my ass off a couple of times… but not because the movie was funny. I was laughing because it was fucking terrible in ways that I didn’t think were even possible.
There was one redeeming point in this movie, however. Amy Smart spends a good chunk of time topless. That’s nothing to complain about.
There’s quite a bit planned for this coming weekend on WTC. We have several new Women of WTC in the works, a new pornstar interview, new VIP content, a huge new VIP promotion, and more!

…or possibly even eliminate it according to Dr. Steven Chu, appointee to the Office of U.S. Energy Secretary. He says that lighter colored roofs, roads, and buildings would reflect far more sunlight than the dark colored material and paint typically used to cover homes, pave roads, and decorate buildings.
