Keeping cool in the heat of battle could soon be easier, thanks to a new U.S. Army helmet that has its own built-in air-conditioning system.The high-tech headgear, which has been compared to something out of the video game "Halo," provides chemical and biological protection through a powered air-purifying respirator. The mask keeps soldiers supplied with cool, fresh air, because, let's face it: Things can get pretty heated in a war zone.The Army's Edgewood Chemical Biological Center started designing next-generation respirators in 2013. Traditional respirators are heavy and bulky, but the new design is much lighter, uses less power and is more comfortable to wear, its developers say. The helmet consists of a face mask, connected by a hose to a blower unit, and a battery pack that hangs from the soldier's hip or back. The blower sucks air through a filtration system on the side of the mask, creating a flow of air across the face. When the wearer exhales, the valve closes and shunts the filtered air into the mask's eye cavity, to prevent any outside contaminants from infiltrating the mask if there's a break in the seal.Scientists tested the technology with a modified version of the Army's M50 joint-service general-purpose mask, and found it performed as effectively as the currently used modelduring crawling, running, rifle exercises and combat maneuvers. The futuristic helmet was also more comfortable, according to Army officials.Researchers at Edgewood will continue to improve designs for new helmets and communication systems, military officials said. For instance, they are investigating ways to make a mask that can sense when to turn the fan on or off by monitoring the soldier's physiology

There are a few questions people ask themselves when it comes to smartwatches and their features. How powerful should a smartwatch really be in order to be useful? Is a smartwatch camera really necessary? How big does the screen have to be in order for the smartwatch to make sense at all? When it comes to size, it’s ultimately important to think about usability over comfort. That is something the Android smartwatch called the Rock is definitely battling.

The Rock Android Smartwatch InnovationWe haven’t heard too much about the Rock smatwatch and its features, or at least I haven’t. The smartwatch itself is something out of the ordinary, and in my own humble opinion, it’s one of the few really cool smartwatches on the market today. Keep in mind though that I am personally a sucker for big watches, especially if they have an industrial design to them. This is definitely a smartwatch to check out if you are looking for a watch that is a little bit ahead of its competition. It’s an Android smartwatch that peers into the future.

There is a race going on when it comes to smartwatches and their features. Apple is waiting to see what the market wants before they put together their own “innovative” smartwatch, and that is how they will play the game this time around as well I am sure. In the meantime, other companies are actually leading the way when it comes to features and designs. Whether the most popular device will be an Android smartwatch or an iOS smartwatch is hard to say, that’s for users to decide.

I am sure we’ll see quite some innovative designs over the next year or two. So what exactly can this Android smartwatch do, and why should we get one? Let’s take a look at the specs right away, shall we? This particular Android smartwatch, dubbed the Rock, has a 2-inch capacitive screen, 8GB micro SD slot and a 2MP Camera. That’s not bad for a device you put on your arm. It of course also has a SIM card slot as well, so you can connect to the Internet and call someone using the touchscreen user interface, which seems to be pretty solid (at least when you look at the demonstration video).

If you’re thinking about buying this beast, you will have to be prepared to cough up some $213.85 over at Chinavasion. Included in that price is also a free 8GB TF card. It is not a bad price for a watch that is currently on the edge of Android smartwatch technology.
