Call me crazy but it seems like things are starting to get a bit too close for comfort between video games and the real world. Anyone who has ever played the Metal Gear games has heard the term DARPA while playing the game, in reality they’re the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a group that is in charge of development of new technologies for use by the military for the Department of Defense. What doesn’t seem to be that big a deal on the surface is getting a bit more interesting by the day as things are unearthed that they’re working on developing. With Metal Gear being focused around the use of giant biped robots that are being used in military missions and in hopes of global domination, it was a bit on the creepy side to see video of DARPA projects that include the creation of a biped robot. It’s enough to drive a gamer a bit on the nuts side, it’s a bit crazy to think about all of these developments coming about and what they could mean to the United States military, but they can easily push someone into full on conspiracy theory world.
I’m not quite willing enough to go about putting together tin foil hats or condemning vaccinations anytime soon but at at the same time I’m willing to start questioning just how far things are going to go, also how quickly other military forces are going to get their hands on our plans and move forward with ripping off the items in order to use against our own forces. There’s this cool idea in the works from DARPA that would result in a bullet proof personal surrounding that could be carried in a can into the battlefield. Something that we’ve seen in video games and science fiction films is being considered for creation through DARPA funding, it could double as a dwelling for a soldier on the battlefield, it’s a bit of a crazy theory but if it’s possible to create why would we not want to have something like this made available for those going into battle for our military? With word that the Pentagon is working on a Zombie Apocalypse plan, this is just another idea of things that could be used in order to protect the survivors while the hordes are coming to take them down. Crazy things are happening more every day, why not a can of “save ass” next, it could always be worse.
