British Defense unveils Liquid Armor for Soldiers

The following post was originally on our sister site, steelarms.com. It is not computer related, but it is very cool and I thought you might like it:

While companies are still trying to make nano-armor, a British firm has come up with their own design. The armor was showcased at a recent expo in Oxford. D3O has created a pliable, almost rubber like material that can be rolled and formed into any shape, but when the material is struck, the molecules lock together and protect the wearer from injury. The video above demonstrates a person being whacked in the head while protected by D30.  For more information see the D30 website.
