This is what I like to see, homebrew space equipment. It’s a spacesuit that was invented by the two gentlemen at Final Frontier Design, one that made its debut at the Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology in New York last week. (Wonder why we weren’t invited?) Besides merely looking neat, it provides all the protection and functionality of a Nasa spacesuit, but only costs about one-fifth of what Nasa usually has to pay. Consider Nasa has approximately $17.50 to its name these days, maybe it wouldn’t be a bad idea to put the designers on some sort of retainer?
The video explains the nuts and bolts of what’s going on, so I won’t bore you with “words” when you can actually see what’s going on with your own eyes.
Bring the price down a little bit, and I can honestly see Williamsburg hipsters strolling down Grand Avenue wearing one of these. Not even on Halloween or anything, but to go to the grocery store or the L train.
