Troy on the march

Troy Hurtubise, 1998 Ig Nobel Prize winner (in the field of Safety Engineering) for spending seven years building and personally testing a suit of armor that he hopes will protect him against grizzly bears (an adventure that inspired an episode of The Simpsons TV show), and whose subsequent exploits we have documented, has invented yet another, even more advanced suit of armor (in a video, pictured below, we see him James Bondishly suited in the sea, and in a tree, and also emerging from a camouflaged hiding place beneath a sandy beach to ambush an evildoing enemy… the best bits begin near the video’s 5:00 minute mark), and is wearing the suit on a march across Canada.
