SOFWERX – Combat Ready Utility eXoskin

SOFWERX, in partnership with Elysian Labs, has innovated the Combat Ready Utility eXoskin (CRUX). The CRUX is a Bluetooth device designed to allow the user to rapidly switch between user-defined Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) integrated capabilities.

The CRUX is fully programmable, can be set up in minutes, and is easy to operate between commands. The next step is to have the CRUX work with the Near-Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) Personal Area Network.

    Can this be setup to work with any app and any app feature? I could see this working well for anyone who has to do with with bulky gloves on, or someone who needs a more stable interface device than a touch screen while moving around.

    Hell, I’d take one of these just for skiing. Outdoor Technology CHIPS have the worst quality on the planet, but the button interface is intuitive. This would allow the use of “dumber” bluetooth headsets without having to resort to direct phone interaction to answer a call or change music.

    Neat idea and just saw that they’re an hour away from us. Good to see defense stuff in my area – it’s a nice change from the all other tech startups.
