ROBOCOP Interactive Viral Site Launches with Images & Videos of New Robots, Weapons & Vehicles
Published: July 16, 2013 - 7:50pm
Sony & Columbia Pictures' upcoming RoboCop remake stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson and is scheduled for theatrical release next February.
In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years – and it’s meant billions for OmniCorp’s bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.
The Omnicorp viral marketing site for RoboCop has undergone a major redesign to include details and images of the company's tech programs. Click on the images below to visit each interactive page and check out videos as well as further details about the products:
Law Enforcement Tech
The Wild West is gone. But even in modern society, citizens need protection – preventative, reactive, determinative. OmniCorp is devoted to elevating the effectiveness of law enforcement technology.
Weapons - Twin Cobra cannons provide precision-strike cover for close-combat searches while anti-armor Hellfire missiles offer 360-deployment for defensive / disruptive maneuvers. Warheads may vary.
Material - Environmentally sensitive yet blast resistant, all units possess the latest in O-Shield material, wrapping reactive graphene armor on the lightest liquid-steel infused mesoskeletal structure yet.
Media - Armed with full media capability – 360 infrasonic cameras and audio targeting – ED-209 operates as evidence recorder, analyzer and transmitter. Real-time backup ensures operational security.
Power - Solar O-cells draw directly from the stars or can be remotely charged from equatorial fuel stations for blackout sorties (subterranean, etc.). The ultimate in clean fuel, enriched O-cells power communications, motion, and weaponry.
Weapons - Automatic carbon-infused pistols offer 98.73% accuracy up to 800 meters with targeting synched to 360-visor scan. Unit can switch mid-blast to armor piercing rounds (range 150 m.) or
short-range flame-thrower option.
Material - Tempered O-Shield armor offers operational flexibility across ecosystems, with auto temperature regulation and self-“healing” functionality. Chemical structure of graphene remotely mutated to optimize defensive strength.
Media - Like big brother ED-209, EM-208 offers the full media suite: 360 infrasonic cameras, audio targeting, and real-time backup. Vocal mediation cued in over 1,500 languages with 500+ regional dialects remotely updatable.
Power - Microscopic solar O-cells chemically bonded into O-Shield armor form the lightest fueling system ever devised, drawing power from the stars and storing bio-galactic fuel for up to 48 hours of Battle-level 5 activity.
Range - XT stands for “eXtreme-Tactics,” and the 908 lives the promise, delivering “clear skies” range of 45 continuous hours and 4,256 miles (6,849 km), with an operational altitude of over 55,000 ft. (16,764m).
Operational Control - Fiber-optic sensors are controlled from ground station via D-band satellite data link for
beyond-line-of-sight operations. Crew (pilot plus two sensor operators) commands take 0.98 seconds to reach XT-908 at max range.
Targeting - The Multi-spectral O-Targeting System includes variable aperture infrared cameras (low light/night) and UAV remote sensing functions for: gamma ray, biological, and chemical.
Built-in radar evasion comes standard.
Weapons - The XT-908 can be armed with a variety of weaponry, including tactical micro-missiles and 50-lb laser-guided surgical bomb units for pre-emptive “restraint” strikes. Weapons limit the XT’s range and maneuverability.
Trigger - The Hyper-touch trigger restricts and releases per the intentionality level applied by the triggerman. Finger “scales” measure and confirm ID prior to unlocking the charge. Ambidextrous safety levers come standard.
Charge - The Neuromuscular-Incapacitator (NI) is guaranteed to deliver a sustained damped oscillation “blunt” pulse with a 12-microsecond delay, 140-170 microcoulomb range, serving a peak loaded voltage of 9,500-12,000 V.
Handle - The NI-408’s “Stun Suppressor” grip guards against reverse-shock while neutralizing the kick that accompanies most neuromuscular-incapacitating devices. Built-in horizontal stabilizers increase accuracy by 27.5%.
Cartridge - The adjustable drive-stun Smart cartridge delivers an electrical charge that penetrates up to 3 inches of protective combat clothing. “Attack Mode” will read and ramp until neutralizing the target’s bio-functions.
Speed - The C-1 maxes out at 248 mph (397 km/hr.) but recommends sub-200 mph for optimal handling. Its liquid-hydrogen cooled 16-valve engine and 6-speed transmission system generates 197 horsepower with fluid mesh.
Wheels - Solid strut forged wheels include brakes and rotor assembly inside wheel face. Dura-Polymeric technology reduces hydroplaning while ensures durability for on and off-road pursuit. Radial
Command / Fuel - Embedded in the C-1 tail unit, OmniCorp
C-series tracking technology enhances remote balance and navigation while empowering in-motion repairs. Override switch triggers pilotless riding functionality.
Material - Carbon-tensile shielded for blast resistance, all vehicles are sculpted from the latest
O-Force material. C-1 melds the reactive nature of graphene into a liquid-steel reinforced exoskeleton, individually
form-fitted to the rider.
Ushering in a New Age
At The Omni Foundation, science is shaped to the needs of people.
A leading expert in biomechatronics, Dr. Dennett Norton has devoted his life to applying its potential towards medical advancements. His achievements in graphene grafts and enhanced intelligence have opened doors to untold frontiers. Yet his greatest achievements are still to come. At OmniCorp, inspired by his genius, we imagine combining the essence of man with the edge of technology and using it to bring crime to a halt.
Join the RC-2000 Program
Commit to a higher purpose. Help us safeguard the future.
There’s no end to the human spirit, and yet the crush of crime pushes us all to the limit. And while there’s no duplicating human instinct, modern robotics technology has clearly exceeded our physical limitations. We believe it’s time to join forces for the common good; it’s time for Man to meet Machine. Experience the wonder of bio-mechatronic breakthroughs in person and stand shoulder to shoulder with OmniCorp for a safer tomorrow.
