Not really sure why a droid would need a backpack since one would expect them to have compartments to carry things another thing i'm not really sure is why it has a weapon that isn't mounted to its arm but then again i think that's just the style right now unpractical. But as for the rest of the droid i have to assume that it can fold up for storage and transport and be unfolded like the battle droids in SW.
If they do indeed fold up will you be sketching a storage crate or box to which transport theses droids. i would very much like to see that.
It's much more practical to make an arm that can grip. Opening doors, picking up non standard weapons, carrying wounded soldiers and many more examples. Same principle goes for the backpack. It can be discarded easily, weighs very little and is interchangeable with any backpack there is. As for the folding up, it would only be a good idea to fold a droid up in a box shape if it's transported in layers. Droids stading up would still fit snuggly next to each other.
Oh, I didn't think about non-standard activities the idea of a battle droid is something that can do limit tasks but isn't really effect when it comes to everyday activities maybe its because in my mind the technology isn't really that advance then again I've never been to sure why this is so but i like to have links that related to current technology and stagnate fields like radio communication and i try and plant theses ideas and past ideas into existing things i created.
Sounds like a fair enough way to think about it. Personally I like the idea of droids that are able to perform one task really well (shooting stuff) but who can also do other tasks to some degree (opening doors, carrying things, climbing over obstacles). But if the technology is somewhere in between now and the far future where they can do that, limitations mean everything. Like a droid that you can escape by running up a staircase because it'll be stuck at the bottom.
Not true, In Doctor who they solved that issue with the daleks. just give them the ability to fly which in my option that dose ruin it for me but i'm sure limitations like stair-climbing will be overpasses because its just a matter or increasing the space between each join more simplistic terms making them taller.
The Daleks? Seriously? They're so inept that they can't even enunciate words so they don't sound idiotic (spea-king in syl-la-bles is not in my o-pin-ion a sign of be-ing ad-van-ced). The Dalek are about as mobile as doorstoppers with wheels, and almost as pointlessly ineffective. They have to turn their entire bodies towards a target before they're able to shoot. Even tanks have their gun mounted to it can shoot in any direction while moving in another. And that's still awfully cumbersome and impractical compared to the ball joint of a human shoulder. Even if a Dalek flew up the staircase towards me I could just close the door in its face, or give it a gentle kick, disrupting its flight and sending it crashing into walls, handrails and eventually; the ground. I don't mean to diss the series btw.
Excactly my good sir! The Dalek would eventually succumb to the power of my gentle kicks, and then leave earth forever. (or at least until I'm dead, by which time they'll return and have their asses gently kicked by my firstborn)
As frontline battle gets even more fierce, soldiers needs privacy and protection when their bladder can't hold the line, use this droid to release the urge while at the same time gets protected and mobile... i think that's a valid reason
That's an understatement. Still, it's good to know that anytime a soldier needs to relieve his or herself on the battlefield, they will find porcelain relief that just happens to be able to provide cover-fire.
