Apparently inspired by its own promotional materials, the US Army appears determined to turn itself into a video game for real.
Not only did it recently host a demonstration of a machine-gun equipped robot, it's also apparently modelled its new helmet design on Halo.
The new design, discovered by KitUp, is by Revision, a company known mainly for its ballistic eyewear.
The design takes a standard Army helmet and adds a ballistic visor and a mandible with 9mm protection.
A version demonstrated at the US Army's annual conference in Washington DC also included a 'HeadsUp' display, with integrated Android-powered battlefield information projected into the inside of the visor.
The helmet is apparently the result of a four-year research project at Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center.
