Liquid armor hardens in contact with bullets
by Mark R
What you see there is a bullet-proof vest, and I’ve just learned that even the best ones cannot completely keep bullets out. However, this one model could change all of that.
This model uses “custard-like goo” that somehow makes molecules lock together when it is hit. I’m going to assume that makes it really, really hard.
Apparently, these “shear-thickening liquids” have been used by downhill skiers in order to prevent broken bones and injuries, and, even though it would seem obvious, this is the first time it is being used as armor.
I don’t know about you, but this technology sounds like something that Wayne Enterprises would have in its basement in Batman Begins. After all, Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman’s character) had this very expensive bullet-proof vest as well as some “memory cloth”. That memory cloth was the stuff that made Batman’s cape go all hard and like a glider. I don’t see why Mr. Fox wouldn’t be working on some bulletproof custard.
Bulletproof custard. Man, that sounds like an item from a desert menu at a school cafeteria. At least, that is what the students would call it.
Well, I’m sure that if this tech works, then all the cops will probably be wearing these bulletproof vests filled with this goo. Hopefully they will not leak.
