Throughout my life I come into several reoccurring dangers in the form of: almost injuring myself at the hands of a bicycle accident, freezing my hands off while riding a bike when I forget gloves, hurdling steeplechase barriers, eating dangerous cafeteria food, and endangering myself by getting lost in random areas. The answer to some of these problems could put themselves in the category of wearable objects including: something to keep my hands warm, a suit to protect me from bike accidents, some type of bounce shoe to get me over the barriers, a helmet with a food tube, or a helmet with a built in heads up display to guide me home.
The meshing of all of these ideas present a clear solution to almost each issue: a suit of armor capable of flying, feeding me, and protecting me. I am choosing this route to engage creatively in a world that I am passionate about. Sci-Fi and genres directly related are things I don’t often get to explore despite my intense interest in them. The armor I create will have a rocket element, most likely in the shoes, to propel me in a controlled way into the air. The helmet associated with the suit will provide a heads up display to allow me to navigate and check readings of my food levels, temperature, and location. The breast plate will protect all of the essential organs from direct impacts and the gloves will both protect my hands and keep them warm.
Some tangible things related to this project include: clone trooper armor, cad bane rocket boots, spartan chest plate, iron man heads up display, winter gloves, a bicycle, a steeplechase barrier, the earth, a modern jetpack, and a master chief helmet.
