The relationship with the Spartans and the ai is so interesting. Spartans are people built to be like a machine. And the ai are machines built to be like a person. Fused into one being through the armor

@JORDEN DAVID it deserves the hate. It was an all right story and the ONLY good thing 343 has done besides MCC. But i dont really count that because of how incompetent they handled that. But it wss also the beginning of the end. The stupid Forerunner shit, I feel like the back story theyve done is amateur.

@Jamie Miller the AI aspect i understand. And thats the boring part. The synchronicity can be achieved with more fine tuned technology. Being able to implant an AI into the cerebral cortex is only a matter of creating thin enough material that can relat data. Simple as. The fascinating bit to me is how they made biological containment and combat skins that sustained them for thousands of years. Its more than just AI. Perhaps this sort of development and technology can be achieved with AI thinking, but the problem becomes our materials and ability to manipulate matter. Imagine some. Imagine some Forerunners in their society, consisting of different ranks. Every suit had to be unique to the wearer to the point where you can go thousands of years without taking a dump. We also understand the Forerunners consumed food, but it was more of a unique event. Being unable to eat is kind of wild. Not even needing it because of the suit. Now, keep in mind, the Forerunners did not build themselves robotic or synthetic bodies. There is a clear distinction between flesh and metal in this universe. So the suits must be a form of advanced technology. No uploading brains into synthetic bodies...at least willingly. But they do have suits. And thats why the AI interaction is boring to me. AI is powerful, we get it. But if it came up with a way to advance on society, would we translate the code right at this time? Probably not. Forerunner suits are nice.

I think Master Chief mentioned once that after the event of Halo 4 he struggled to operate without cortana because he didn't need to ask for something, cortana was already doing what he wanted, they basically become one and Cortana saved directly master Chief life few times, back in installation 04 a Flood infector made his way throught the armour almost reached John's skin, Cortana overdrive the energy system to fry it

Your videos always have such a high level of quality production, intricate depth of the Halo extended lore, and attention to detail that it's genuinely sad that they aren't seen enough by the Halo community. I loved how you covered how armor has Evolved to Combat different stages of weaponry throughout history with the pros, cons, and compromises. The custom animations were also a great addition. When I saw the title, I was really hoping to see some footage or reference to The Prototype from Halo Legends, with it being a massive exoskeleton like the Mark I and II, but didn't need to be tethered and had a plethora of powerful offensive and defensive capabilities. Would have also loved to hear you describe some of the awesome features of the early models in addition to the downsides like extreme power consumption or cost but your video was already a mountain of information at half an hour long and I genuinely loved every minute of it! Even got goosebumps a few times from how cool everything was. I'm gonna go refresh my lore knowledge from your past videos. Amazing job as always!!! :D

A another reason I love halo is the believable science. It's really science fiction instead of fiction that has a bit of science. The TV show has dump all this down the drain. Just one thing. I believe the Bioform injector was already there for Mark 5 armor as I'm pretty sure I read it being used in Fall of reach, The flood or The first strike. Not sure which book exactly

@Pasindu Dinusha Super hero stuff is most definitely more in the realm of fantasy than sci-fi. Most of it is just a re packaging of age old mythology. There is a subtle difference between science fiction and fantasy. Usually fantasy will embrace more usage of "magical" things and not be as heavy in technological subjects, usage of "the force" puts Star Wars into more a fantasy realm. Sci fi seems to be predominantly about the potential progress of technology, with an exploration of societal/political issues. More a reflection of where we are at now, rather than a dream, detached from our universe. But they are not mutually exclusive. There are many stories that mix sci fi and fantasy well.

There is a fine art to "plausible" science fiction. Yes, Halo is one of the better ones. Star Trek is probably the model for that form of writing. Others not so much. Science fiction CAN be a good test bed for actual science. It's a pre-hypothesis stage, where thinkers can experiment with new ideas to explore what realms of science we should develop further. Without the rigid 'peer review' of actual science. It's the planning stage of science.

@문아대 Yeah you are right about that. Like you mentioned Marvel and DC don't sit well with me. But I do watch their movies. I just think of them as fantasy. But I'm a fantasy fan too. It just I want a believable system even within those fantasy settings. It doesn't have to exactly as ours but I like it that when fantasy worlds have rules and systems that sets limits and enables creative opportunities. Hopefully we will see more creative sci fi work in future. By the way I hope you'll be able to contact your friends again. Maybe find some new friends too. Yours is the friendliest ranting I heard recently. I'll say the same to you. Stay safe and healthy.

@Pasindu Dinusha I think what you meant was 'scientific' part, rather than science. In my understanding, the word 'science' means both the struggle to find knowledge and the knowledge itself, so it can be something like our own limited understanding of our world laws of physics or it can be someone's understanding of their own universe laws of physics (or the lack thereof) like things such as the commonly known/named as magic, psychic power etc. If we get to be more technical, even the power-system/magic-system in some fiction like 'Mother of Learning' that have their own well-defined parts of said power system is "methodologically" correct within their own universe and thereof 'scientific' in their own way. What I understand from your writing, what you want is actually 'our-world-physics's-scientifically-correct', and not just some mumbo jumbo regarding unobtainium and Shakespearean-influenced story plots which are prevalent in science fantasy. An easy example of the comparison between Sci-Fi and Sci-Fan are the movies Star Trek and Star Wars. It seems that you're the kind of guy who likes weaponries and wars like in the irl history of world wars and in fictions such as fallout. Got many friends like you, who sadly I'm not in contact again after the pandemic. Hope that you'll find more sci-fi works that you'll like and I'm sorry for my rambling lmao. Stay safe and healthy.

Never seen your channel before but this is an absolutely awesome video. The writers of halo seemingly went to great lengths and effort to make things reasonably possible with the current rate of technology advancement. Of course they did drop the ball on the piezoelectric crystal thing. Humans have known for a very long time that piezoelectric crystals both produce energy when deformed and deformed when energy is applied to them. In fact pretty much every single automotive direct fuel injected gas and Diesel engine use piezoelectric injectors.

What's new here is probably the level of strain this new piezo material goes through when subject to voltage. Having a material strain by 10% or more without yielding is quite a feat to pull off, which is why you don't see it used in any large-scale robotics application

In relation to Power Armor in general, Mjolnir-style or not, I really am starting to think that some kind of compact ICE engine, combined with a electric generator, might actually be the key in major breakthroughs for viable Power Armor. That, or at least a step in the right direction! We can build ICE engines that fit into RC toys, for Librarians sake. Why not something that can fit on the back of a power-armored soldier? As long as it was powerful and efficient enough, without being too heavy or bulky, it might actually be viable for combat applications. It's also a fairly proven technology that we've had for at least a hundred years, so developing and building a PA-scaled ICE engine should, hypothetically at least, be possible with present-day technology. =^x^=

The MARK IV is my favorite iteration of the MJOLNIR armor. It looks pretty and comfortable, but at the same time heavy and intimidating, plus it doesn't have that ridiculous amount of colors and accessories. It doesn't look like a robot like the armors in Halo 4 and 5, but it's also not as unnecessarily minimalist as the one in Halo 2 and 3.

You can make rifle-rated flexible armor even without shear thickening fluid, for example Safe Life Defense Flexible Rifle Armor System by employing smart design and better commercially available material. Basic rule of creating really good ballistic armour is stacking many layer of 2 types of alternating materials that's optimized for 2 different purposes (akin to bullet resistant window), one high hardness material to break apart the kinetic penetrator and one high tensile, compressive and shear strength material to act as crumple zone to absorb kinetic energy of (hopefully) fragmented kinetic penetrator.

There is just a little mistake at the beginning of the video, but it's a common misconception. Plate armor was not developed to counter swords, maille was good enough for that. In fact until the xiii century that was the primary armor for knights. It was developed to counter other kinds of weapons, such as warhammers, maces, crossbows and longbows, etc. Knightly warfare was relatively safe, these were all nobles and rich people who you'd rather capture than kill. But once infantry became more ruthless and effective against knights, with little to no rules on how to engage in battle other than to fight to the death of the opponent, they took extra precautions

The armor he switches to in halo 2 is the Mark 6 . It's also noted that Spartan 2 Naomi-010 was issued GEN1 Mark VII so the suit mentioned was actually built. It was expensive. And Spartan 4s where incapable of using it hence the gen 2 armor. Chief currently uses the Gen 3 version which Is a hybrid of technology from both generations and some improvements.

@SameToken Incredible video! I don't see anything that was a bit off, I learned a vast array of new detail I did not know! However, I thought a neat dynamic regarding AI and MJOLNIR was missing. In the Fall of Reach, newly acquainted Cortana and John perform a test exercise of their new integration effectiveness in which they ultimately defelect a SkyHawk launched scorpion missle with John's left palm. Dr. Halsey adds a fascinating detail regarding further improved reaction time via AI integration above the already boosted neural implant/MJOLNIR response time - another encyclopedic-level bit 🤓 "Cortana resides in the interface between your mind and the suit, Master Chief. You will find your reaction time greatly improved. She will be translating the impulses in your motor cortex directly into motion—she can’t make you send those impulses.” Cheers to a great video!

Living inside a Mjolnir suit must be one of the most alienating experiences in the universe, in the beginning... until you get used to it and it almost reverses, so that living outside of it feels wrong.

I was hoping to see you show clips of the "Prototype" episode from halo legends to demonstrate what the earlier suits were like in combat.

Masterchief's armour would Have a variable vectored thermoelectric heat exchanger system linked to a thermal exchange fluid micro channel array in the gel layer, with micro scale bio foam injector valves every Centimeter of the internal lining layer which would also have pressure sensors for movement sensing and movement power amplification as part of the power suit actuator interface system (all of which would be accessible by cortana through the cerebral interface port behind Chief's head) Also the suit plating would have layers of titanium and Graphene with the graphene acting as a low resistance electromagnet field generator to push the plasma energy field far away enough from the plating to prevent melting it and the suit would be positively electrically charged with dc electrostatic discharge from the shield generator at the tip of the helicon ioniser antenna, the plasma energy shield which is negatively charged would have a Cyclotronic resonnant frequency coupling with it from a high frequency (dc pulse) RF current source on every plate of the armour, The High velocity of the thin plasma sheath would absorb incoming plasma and would repel and deflect small projectiles but would be pushed against the suit from larger projectiles causing a catastrophic plasma explosion for example if a sniper rifle bullet were to impact it, so the suit's computer system would have to automatically cut off the shield retention and ionisation fields to prevent a compounding plasma flow pileup point causing an explosion. The Visor would be a multi layer Aluminium oxynitride/artificial sapphire outer layer with an oled illuminated smart glass Hud display behind a layer of polygiene plastic film, The armour plating would have an outer layer of tungsten with a micro porous outer coating of titanium nitride that would retain metal oxide coloured dyes in definitely. The shield upon being impacted would cause the contacting tips of any projectiles to be explosively ionised in repelled by the sudden high pressure ionised (metal) gas, The energy source of the suit would consist of a compact miniature (Deuterium-Tritium) fusion reactor with a high efficiency thermoelectric heat to electricity converter array heat sinked to the base, of the reactor toroid. The Fluid systems including full body temperature regulated micro fluid channels and biofoam injectors pumped by magnetohydrodynamic micro pump vessels, and planar peristaltic micro pump arrays. Chief's back armour panels would be thick but with air tank cavities inside to store enough pure liquified oxygen to provide the air scrubber systen to keep chief alive for +-2 hours? Given Lungs consume on average 6 Millilitres of oxygen per hour, each tank inside the panel would be +-800 Millilitres or 0.8Litres. The second tank would contain water and protein powder with advanced targeted delivery multi vitamins and the thired part of the tank containing biofoam liquid. The carbon dioxide scrubber would be a nano-porous film with a high pressure compressor, acting as a high flow rate gas phase reverse osmosis system. Sweat and urine are collected and are purified with a reverse osmosis graphene nano porous filter membrane and then deionised with cyclic self cleaning electrostatically charged platinum micro plate arrays. Suit jacks cief off automatically, maybe with a bit of assistance from cortana 💀, when in space, The suit operator has to use standard astronaught toiletry procedures, which would obviously be fatal otherwise, boots have super powerful graphene wire electromagnets for walking in zero G, maybe small batteries in the thighs /Hip plates for maybe up to 10 minutes auxilliary suit power. -Do you know how expensive this shit is son? ... -Tell that to the covenant. -😔☺

I applaud the level of plausible scientific detail that went into the making of this armor. However, the main achilles heel as I see it, which was overlooked, especially in the pre-shield variants would have been explosive concussive shock protection. Even wearing impenetrable armor, an explosive shock can penetrate pretty much anything, because atoms vibrate. And without any kind of dampening field, this would have killed the wearer or made them combat ineffective, even though the external armor plating could stop any shrapnel from the explosion. Other than that, this was a brilliant and well thought out design. The other flaw in the concept, is that if it employs piezo-electric skin for its mobility, an external hit from an energy weapon would have caused the armor to flex uncontrollably and lock up, again killing the wearer. A reflective coating most likely wouldn’t have stopped this from happening in reality.

@BoogerLeader I guess in the future they don’t believe in parachutes. lol A gel layer would still not be able to contain enough of the shock to stop the wearer from dying. The only thing I can think of that would potentially do the job is a force field that absorbs all kinetic energy from explosions or impacts before it hits the armor, and that would essentially make the armor pointless. With a shield like that, Spartans could theoretically run around naked and stay protected just as if they had armor on. But again this is a video game and the armor has a coolness factor to it that people love. A good example is Dune with their kinetic barriers that make all projectile weapons useless, and as a result, they run around with knives and swords that have to slowly penetrate the shield in order to kill their opponents.

In the Reach book, if I remember correctly, they explain that there's a gel layer on the armor that's meant for that exact problem. It's how chief managed to survive the impact of falling from the sky and hitting the ground like a giant stone. The gel layer has a few different uses, but that's one of them.

How mjolnir works? It protect, it attack. But most of all... it look badass 😎

23:35 bio foam injectors were already standard in the MKV and B variants. MKVI introduced automatic versions. Which means they didnt need medkits to use said injectors. MKV only had the basic injectors, but not the bio foam itself installed.
