Army Helmet Design With Built-In Air Conditioning

With our soldiers being exposed to biological weapons and operating in extreme hot environments and uncomfortable conditions, it is a wonder why this hasn't been thought of before. Although the design is still being perfected by the Army, the design is as simple as it is brilliant: 

...this new design is all about functionality. Respirators are awesome for helping soldiers avoid breathing poison gas, but they also tend to be bulky and heavy. The technology built into this helmet weighs less and uses less power. A hose connects a blower unit and battery to the mask, which keeps a steady stream of cool air on the soldiers face.
