    IDW 0015: Personal Security Unit [VOTING]

    Topic: Personal Security Unit

    Background: Civilisation is starting to crumble. As the world becomes more unstable, corruption, intrigue and backstabbing become common place. The rich and powerful have learnt to be weary of even their closest colleagues. No longer fulling trusting their bodyguards, they look for new solutions to keep them out of harm's way and they're willing to pay a high price for it.


    Brief:

    1. It must reduce the possibility of successful assassination attempts on the target.

    2. It may augment existing systems to achieve this.

    3. It should give them as much freedom as possible to go about their business - what's the point of power if you can't use it?

    Concept: Flip Industries, being the communist bastards that they are, have created a PSU to help keep 'their' leaders in good health. Arm attachments give the user some (limited) protection while heightening their senses through drugs provided intravenously. Air born drugs projected from the shoulders are used to dull the strength, dexterity and senses of those around the user. Even against a skilled attacker the PSU provides an unfair advantage. The cruel twist to this product is that in order to keep control over their leaders Flip Industries has made the intravenous concoction highly addictive; withdrawal symptoms generally causing death in the user or leave them in a 'damaged' state.

    A School of 20 or more bio-mechanical, genetically engineered, flying killer Piranha, they hover over head, flying around the person being guarded, checking for assassins, criminals and booby traps with their advanced sensors. When a 'target' is discovered they attack in a frenzy chewing and biting the target to oblivion, this means very little if any collateral damage. Intimidation is obviously better than confrontation so the 'Piranha's are designed to still look vicious, mean and intimidating as they slowly circle, above the protected. They can follow the owner anywhere and can be ordered to hover else where in polite company, such as under the chair or up in the ceiling.

    The latest in innovative Personal Security Units brought to you by the Jex Corporation. Total body protection that can withstand bullets and melt the toughest of metals upon impact. No recharging is needed because it comes with solar panels and it feeds off of electrical impulses. The solar panels are made of obsidian to insure maximum sunlight absorption. If no sunlight is available, electrical impulse gatherers are spread over the entire set. These EIGs sync up with the owner's own electrical impulses. The EIGs can detect the muderous intent of man/being/animal for maximum protection. So, no cheap sniper shots to take your life or any stray bullets (or fists!). Male models come with low heels. Available in custom colors and the extra strength "Obsidian Black" Edition for heavy duty protection.

    the character is surounded by a bunch of floating drones which will expand themselfes to produce a hexagonal force field in a case of acute danger. after the attacker is located the expanded drones align next to each other to provide maximal protection. their field is capable of stopping incoming bullets as well as electrocuting targets which try to engage the charakter in close combat.

    This is the Stepford Corp. Personal Security Unit. Based on technology that had long been used for advanced childrens toys and 'companion' bots, the need for an unflinching bodyguard saw the rise of these Personal Security Bots. Generally created in the form of beautiful women (or men) the security unit follows their ward like a shadow. Always within arms length, watching for threats. Their armament is kept hidden , as an overt show of force or protection is considered in bad taste. The Artificial Intelligence Limitation Treaty of 2075 prevents the security units from carrying ranged weapons; but their dozens of hidden blades and innate speed and agility make them a remarkable deterant to all but the most suicidal assassins.

    In addition to basic programming for defense, combat and tactical logic. The Personal Security Units boast a complete poison sniffer suite, able to detect poisons deposited in food or drink, as well as airborn gases. They can also be purchased or upgraded to function as nannys, servants, companions, or even entertainers. Many wealthy and paranoid individuals surround themselves with Personal Security units that function not only as an army of bodyguards but as an entourage of personal assistants.

    Sogbad almost got my vote for uniqeness... the idea of schools of mechanized piranha hovering around swanky sci-fi social events is a new one.

    But ultimately my vote went to Flip for overall design and nifty execution.

    I hope to see everyone in the next round... maybe we can breath some life into the IDW.

    Voted Lodin.

    While I really like Tec's defence drone idea, I think an armed robot dog and sensors would make me feel most at ease.
