Re: TDK Backpack


I was pretty sure they incorporated foam latex, just not on the scale of past suits.

Re: TDK Backpack


Based on those photos, here is a drawing I made - it's not to scale, and probably not very accurate...

Re: TDK Backpack


and yet it looks really good! I played connect the dots on the picture that helped you:

I'm either seeing, or imagining a spine in the center, that acts as a hinge, allowing both shoulders to open (think of that Back to the futur car, remember the way the doors open?) If I'm right, well I still don't understand how the cape is one unified...thing, instead of two distinct wings.

Re: TDK Backpack


Very interesting...It seems every picture I see of this it changes a little bit. I'm actually quite angry because my first design out of sheet metal was made after that WayneTech Flip Action Cape, which, ironically, doesn't look much like the film prop. Oh well...thanks Zmanz!

Re: TDK Backpack


come to think of it, I really don't understand how the cape that's coming out of this space age backpack can, once unleashed, connect itself to the neck, as seen in the following scene, taking place in the building itself (by that I mean the cape is back in its standard position).

The more I think of it, the less the idea of hiding a cape in there and have it pop out into place (and then have it rest over this backpack mind you) seems possible. So having this would be nice, but I would hide equipment in it, and lay the cape over it, although it might make me look like a hunchback, seeing how big this thing is.

Re: TDK Backpack


I watched TDK again yesterday and when the pack opens they look more like wings than a cape :huh

Re: TDK Backpack


I can tell you how they got the cape in that little pack and got it to attach. The had the stuntman swan dive off into a giant pad... cut scene, bring in other stuntman or Bale with the cape extended and attached to complete scene. Fill in gaps with CGI. Wayne tech eat your heart out!

Re: TDK Backpack


Great pics Zmnz :up

And good luck to anyone trying to make this. Just remember that the whole backpack idea was suppose to used more in the film, specifically for riding the Bat-pod. This was cut because of how cool the cape moved in the wind though (I found this out while watching the TDK special features). So we may never know exactly how the cape retracted into and "exploded" out of the pack.

Re: TDK Backpack


I thought the memory fabric was used to form the "backpack". Isn't the pack just another shape the cape is capable of making when the particles are charged and align?

Re: TDK Backpack


the texture of the backpack doesn't really indicate that. I didn't buy the movie yet, but isn't there some good shots in the special features, to get a clearer idea of its shape and function?
