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. Stats for Cyborg Firefighter Armor Trending: Older & Mild
