Description

Picture it...you're flying a helicopter over a warzone and you're looking for soldiers who need to be rescued. You see uniforms spread out across the battlefield but you can't tell who is in need of assistance. Well...imagine now that these same soldiers had illuminations on their uniforms that allowed you, and only you, to determine their level of distress. 
Imagine no longer- it's real and it's here. This is what happens when Exmocare teams up with JF Magic.

And take a look at our previous coverage of Exmocare.

      really nice, but just a temporary resolution until soldier nano technology gets on the field in my oppinion. also very expensive considering the cameras would probably have to be mounted on aerial vehicles which would then do the surveilance (uav´s would be cheaper though), in addition to the clothing (for like 50k soldiers thats a lot of fiber optics) and the camera technology would have to be protected like fort knox because if some bad guy gets hold of it, he would be able to see enemy soldiers through walls... but the casual clothing is definetely a total party hit. for mining safety purposes i think its ideal and miners surely would appreciate it. just for like daily wear you dont need a jacket that blinks green yellow or red to display peoples vital status. if someone is having a heart attack i dont need a yellow light on the persons jacket to realize there is something wrong.
