#953: Wheeledshield

Maybe it’s a symptom of growing up in Belfast but I’m particularly interested in bomb disposal (I only discovered recently that Conscientious Objectors often worked in this area during WWII, for example).

Today’s invention is a solid blast shield to the back face of which a disposal expert is strapped. The shield would be made of heavy-grade armour plating and fitted with all-terrain wheels -allowing the wearer to move in very close to an IED or UXB.

The shield would be fitted with robotic arms and a set of cameras, all of which would be used from behind the shield, so that in the event of detonation, protection would be maximised.
