Reason #4657 why I want to be a fighter pilot

The new, super badass helmet for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. 20071108_testhelmet_600×400.jpg

Not only does it make you look like some post-Orwellian nightmare, but it gives you the power to see through metal:

"This Helmet Mounted Display System provides the pilot with cues for flying, navigating and fighting the aircraft. It will even superimpose infra-red imagery onto the visor which allows the pilot to ‘look through’ the cockpit floor at night and see the world below."

Coooool.
