High Impact Tactical Suit Version 1

Tell us the story of your project: 

I have been working on these suit for years now and have finally completed the suit, both suit are my prize possession! I designed the suits for a new compition that I am developing that detects high impacts from melee weapons, hand to hand combat, or rang weapons. I have designed this suit with with over 30 impact sensors throughout the suit with leds on the chest that change colors depending on what team you choose to join. 

 

Version 1

 

Version 2

 

The suit also connects to the internet which connects it with a database that keeps your deaths, matches playes, team members, and rounds played. I plan on building more features into the suit and arm mounted device.

Creating a high impact sensing suit that connects to the internet and database for a new possible competition that I am working on.
Aha! moment: 
While building the first suit I started to notice that I can create a suit that's lighter and has the ability to have different outfits fit over it. I also realized that if everything comes together right I can have an endless amount ideas be able to come to life.
Uh-oh! moment: 
So many times I came to the point where I thought I was in over my head and couldn't possibly finish the suit. This has happened on both versions. I thought I couldn't figure out the code that I was writing that wouldn't work, or the material that I was hand shaping and assembling.
