Well, we weren’t expecting that? Hello guys and welcome to my first post of the day.
In 2054, technology has advanced in ways we might not be able to imagine right now, but are rooted in today’s designs.
Sledgehammer Games’ depicts their vision of this future in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with some pretty crazy gadgets like 3D-printing assault rifles and plasma weapons.
Liquid matter loaded into the assault rifle is printed as real ammunition which should dramatically reduce reload times.
This is the same plasma rifle seen mounted on an SUV in Advanced Warfare’s debut trailer.
Advanced Warfare’s EXO suit will offer players enhanced in-game abilities, including extra strength, boost-jumps, boost-dodge, and much more. The EXO suits in Advanced Warfare carry a smaller battery size than the prototypes in development today, increasing player mobility drastically.
Inspired by a fusion of the motorcycle and snowmobile, Advanced Warfare’s hover bike features a windshield composed of “smart glass” that allows UI to meld with others in the game. It’s angular armor is designed to deflect enemy fire and shifts as the bike moves. It’s seen hovering about Detroit in Advanced Warfare’s debut trailer.
Aircraft in Advanced Warfare is designed to better withstand explosives and projectiles. Sledgehammer predicts that aircraft in the future will take-off vertically, eliminating the need for runways.
What’s your take on plasma weapons and 3D-printed ammunition? Is it feasible a few decades down the road?
