That helmet tho I think that one is spot on with kinda like a classic feel to it.

If I'm not mistaken, in the canon Samus can form the suit around her with her mind. In that case it's not necessary to make the suit industrial-looking (or the arm cannon that big) or have the paint stripes mentioned above, since Samus doesn't have to go buy parts to weld in place to upgrade anything. Also those glow plugs (bolts?) look bad, I get the blizzard look but I would change those and make them not come out of the suit like that. Something that wouldn't be necessary for someone that can form the suit around them.

I like everything EXCEPT the caution stripes on her thighs. The caution stripes look terrible. Take them off.

MVN BIOMECH

The MVN BIOMECH systems are the number one choice for measuring 3D kinematics everywhere, under any circumstance.Xsens tailored both hardware and software of the MVN BIOMECH systems to ensure reliable and accurate human motion measurements. Special developed and tiny motion trackers are able to capture the smallest twitches to high dynamic movements on-body. Dedicated signal pipelines take care of real-time and robust data connections.The proven MVN BIOMECH biomechanical model and sensor fusion algorithms ensure the highest quality motion analysis, even in challenging environments.

Highlights

MVN-BIOMECH-Link

Robust and reliable

  • Superior algorithms ensure measurements in any condition, including magnetic disturbances
  • <10µs inter-tracker time synchronization essential for accurate joint angles
  • Accurate real-time data. Effortlessly
  • 3D character visualization
  • 3D kinematic graphs
  • Patented signal pipelines
  • No post processing, instant export

Integration

MVN-BIOMECH-Awinda

  • Easy sync with 3rd party devices
  • Data streamed or imported to many digital environments

Use anywhere

  • Tiny trackers worn over or under clothing
  • Use on the field, outside. In the lab, at the desk, production floor, everywhere

Applications:

mvnbiomech-factory

  • Biomechanics research
  • Ergonomics and Human Factors
  • Human Machine Interaction
  • Rehabilitation research
  • Sports Science
  • Virtual Reality

Hardware

The MVN BIOMECH product line has two hardware configurations (MVN BIOMECH Link and MVN BIOMECH Awinda). Both configurations are wireless and consist of 17 motion trackers for full-body human motion measurements and are easy to transport.
