  • When Gipsy Danger is being booted up, you can see the visor is somewhat see-through. Then the visor closes up (?) and the holograms appear. My question is, did the pilots see the outside world through the visor or everything were relayed to their helmets? From what i see, they could efficiently fight, despite a bunch of holograms, widgets... are in front of them, obscuring their view. I mean, if they don't need the visor to see, then all of the conn-pods should be placed deep in the body, where they can be heavily protected instead of being placed on the neck.

    • I think the visor screen is a display screen like in Star Trek. The screen displays what's in front of you.

    • Yeah, a hexagonal one.  If you look at this, you can see the visor having been broken into its layers.

    • Well, if the visor is just a display screen, why are they so narrow? The visual field of human eyes are pretty wide. The visors only cover the frontal view, they probably couldn't see anything come from their side. If you see Iron Man, I think you can see the point here. The helmet of Iron Man covered all of the visual field, providing Stark the vision just like his naked eyes. In Pacific Rim, you pilot the mech through a (somewhat) tiny window. I think it will be much better if they relocate the conn-pod to the body and do what Stark did: a wider screen for better view. The jeager head would be the just like the human head: sensors like eyes, ears, then relay the signal to the conn-pod, the brain.

      Or the visor are actually the only window they have to see the outside world?

      Hang on. You're missing part of the idea here. There are cameras mounted 360 degrees around Gipsy's head. The rear-facing cameras are mounted on the back of the protective shield. So if you want to look at what's behind you just switch to those cameras and the rear view is displayed in front of you.

    • They can probably "see" through Drifting with Gipsy. Like their minds might have been connected to radar/sonar systems as well as cameras. 

      Radar and sonar would probably bee a litteral 6th sense XD

      I guess that's why Cherno Alpha lost the battle, they couldn't see 2 kaiju coming after them, from both sides.

      I get the idea of controlling the jaeger through your arms, legs... but they never specified that seeing part. The concept art here probably describes that the pilots of Crimson Typhoon actually see through their visor to fight. The pilots of Crimson maybe have better view than others, because the holograms are behind them and don't obscure their view. But I never understand the others.

    • I couldn't edit anything since I'm not a registered user, sorry. I'm not familiar with this type of forum, I thought I left only the url and the image came up. You can edit my post anyway you see fit. Thank you.

    • What do I look like? A mod?

      Well, in any case, try to remember it for next time.

    • my geuss is that the visor is how they see the outside world, and the hud just gives acess to wepons, extra info, and what they can't see

    • Sorry to revive a dead thread but someting occured to me, when Gipsy loses it's left arm Raleigh screems out and grabs his arm at the point where Gipsy took the impact. This could suggest some sort of feedback system. Also in regard to the Crimson triplets, if they're in one another's head via drifting would it not matter if one of them couldn't see as well as the others as he could use the drift to compensate? (just spitballing, not entirely sure if it works like that).

    • The Jaeger pilots do feel pain when the Jaeger takes damage. Travis Beacham has confirmed it.

    • Cherno Alpha's conn pod is in his chest

    • Yes. It's the safest place to be. No escape pods though. Moreover; not watertight.

    • That was likely the result of the damage it had sustained. In the novelization they supposedly talk about Cherno Alpha as the backup plan for carrying the bomb.

    • I think that their drift-connected to the visor so they are basically the entire jaeger

    • Sorry, didn't word that correctly. The visor is drifted with the eyes.
