Future firefighters may look surprisingly like "RoboCop" with a new armor system designed by Scott Summit called the 'PyroPack.' Featuring everything from a heads-up display to a Spiderman-style drychem nozzle located on the arm, the 'PyroPack' weighs surprisingly little due to modern manufacturing and new fire-resistant materials.
Each 'PyroPack' backpack is custom fitted to the user to ensure optimum weight distribution and maximum flexibility.
Implications - The new materials that go into making the the PyroPack are what make it so expensive. Each pack is set to be priced at $7000 each! It is said that it will likely lower in the future, but if firemen want it now, they have to pay the big bucks.
