The article is about a man who, in 1978, was accidentally shot in the head by a proton beam coming from a particle accelerator. He didn't die, but the effects of the proton beam seem eerily similar to the Gantz X-gun.
"As you can see from the picture, the beam entered the back of Bugorski's head and came out around his nose. Shortly after this happened, Bugorski's left half of his face swelled up beyond recognition."
I'd hope to see something similar to the gantz suit in the future. A skin-tight suit that can be worn underneath my clothes yet makes me bulletproof? Yes please.
The bad news is the first ones to get a hold of them would be the governments and the extremely wealthy.
i doubt they would ever release a suit like that to the public.
If heaven forbid Gantz tech did exist then there is no way that a civilian would get anyway near that no matter how much money they had. No government would allow it. Furthermore I'm sure that the cost of producing it would far exceed what anyone man could afford to pay.
It would be scary regardless as I trust neither with such power. It would be great if I had a gantz suit, the invisibility remote, and an h-gun or two though.
I think a Gantz-Suit is already "partially" created already.
It may most likely only be distributed to astronauts if we have finally obtained enough technology to go to other plants effortlessly.
The suit is honestly something that I wouldn't see being developed anytime in the forseeable future. The first type of strength-enhancing suits I could see would be more like the type in you see in Crysis or Halo (exoskeletons). The gantz suit actually protects its user by way of some invisible force field (which is why the head is also protected); it's not the actual material of the suit itself which does anything.
so to simplify, if human use this method in the future,then they have to solve 3 main problems
1.control the reaction rate inside a very tiny cell
2.absorb large amount of heat and radiation with a thin,plastic suit
3.very very fast and accurate processor and sensor, eg. if the sensor hangs,the sensor keep giving processor signal "muscle A, contract", and then the processor will keep contracting the "muscle A" even if it doesnt, it will cause muscle cramp, maybe fatal since it's powered by nuclear energy
yea....i know this sounds logical
I don't think that Gantz-style weaponry will exist...I have my doubts about actually being able to create such technology, but let's say, that such technology is at our disposal...today's armed combat is designed, or the future designs are in such a way, that the soldier/fighter would be far from harm's way...what I've seen so far, the focus is on AI guiding systems, long ranged fighting and such...so fancy suits and close quarter firearms like in Gantz won't really exist...I think
As for a gantz suit, trust me, the gov't isn't getting one of those from the lowest bidder. You'd see it from private industry long before us.
