One thing I like about Attack on Titan are those lovely Omni-Directional Maneuver (ODM) gears! They're the perfect combination of a jetpack and a grappling hook. I love how the thrusters are placed at the center of mass (the hips),
I love how it requires a full-body harness to distribute the force,
I love everything about it.
The only thing I want to add to my version is an extra thruster on the grappling hooks that push the hooks into and out of anchor objects.
However, it can't work at the
speed acceleration we have seen.
This begs the question: at what level (of acceleration) can this thing work in?
That was already answered by NASA, though.
To put it simply, the ODM gear needs a way to prevent any and every acceleration in any direction that goes above a certain limit.
How can it do that?
