What would you pay for to see with your bucket on?

Recommended Posts

If there was a way that could be built that would give you 360 vision and be able to see your feet while standing straight in Armor, What would be the top end price you would pay?

Post a concept design so others have an idea of what you're doing

Honestly I’m all for gadgets but is this possible at a reasonable price. Are you working on it?

I’m out. Too expensive and I’ve got a big head. Would love to see it done though. Good luck.

Very cool idea, I'd love to see a working example! The cost is too much for me, but I also don't need to see 360 degrees around me. I would be happy with just a simple view in front of me.

 

Does you set up completely block the normal view out of the helmet lenses? One issue I would be concerned with is the tech failing mid troop and not being able to see anything.

Is there anyway we can do this Iron Man style where everything just pops up in front of you? I’m sure the tech is out there it’s in a movie.

Following out of interest, but personally I see decent enough I wouldn't bother.  I do have friends and fellow members who would be very interested based on price, too.

I struggle with the distance between eyes and lens, no idea how you get anything in there.

I can barely get my bucket on as it is.  I can't imagine being able to get it over a set of goggles, as much as I'd love to have the better vision.

I second the opinion of front-only being nice.

Hi guys,

 

This called my attention. I have a couple of observations as ideas for improving size and cost, having worked on stuff similar to this for my degree. you can fit LCD shutters (samsung smart TVs use similar stuff for 3D glasses) on the visor easily enough, with a micro usb camera on the teeth, all wired to a Single Board Computer like an Aaeon UP Squared or an Nvidia Jetson/Xavier (depending on specs I would go for Nvidia because of real-time graphic processing), they can fit on the back plate just the same with a 3Dprinted case and you could have the whole thing working for $500 at 1/4 the size and weight for extended periods of time with a lithium ion battery for power. It could work for an entire troop no problem. size on the helmet would be minimal depending on the camera used because lcd shutters are extremely thin.

 

Let me know if you have any questions and would love to see a prototype.

 

Best Regards

 

Javier

I'd like to see a prototype.   Right now my helmets are infamous for being spartan, e.g. I have a single pad at the top of the dome, mesh is taped in with painters tape, lenses are similar. I mean it's pretty raw.  I keep thinking about putting vox/fans in my helmet, but personally I don't like boom mikes or having wires run down my collar.  One of my garrison mates was able to get everything 100% contained in his lid, which I thought and still do that it's the ideal.

 

I'd love to hear your ideas on how to improve vox as well, as ideally I could have a toggle that would allow me the following:

* No augmentation
* Speaker
* FRS or similar so that anything I say can only be heard by others listening in
* Cell phone

 

Even if I had to have a chin toggle, e.g. I pushed a button or similar with my thumb to a switch in the helmet chin, that would be fine.

A prototype would be awesome. Ideally it would be small enough to be contained within the helmet, but I don't know if that would be possible. 

 

My coworker has been playing around with a lot of VR headsets and one of them has several cameras on it so when you wear it, you are still able to see the environment around you (although it was in black and white). I wonder if something like that would be possible (if so I can't imagine it being cheap).

This would be very cool to have - how many times have you been at a troop looking for a particular trooper or trying to organize the troopers for a picture, but people can't hear you or are too far away.
