1. Yeah, post it on the net so everyone can see the secret weapon.

2. You can`t cover your face with it.

3. I, like all the other fellas here, cringed at the mention of being shot in the groin.

What happens when you trip and fall on something hard...?
Do you stiffen up?

question... if one area is shot/stabbed, does the entire thing stiffen up, or just that one area...?

"... but do you think that`s a good enough excuse for wars? Without wars we might not have so much Stuff (yet), but I like to think we`d be better off as a race. Oh and by the way, the US military did not invent logistics. The ancient Greeks did. Look it up."

To answer your question, Yes. But more importantly, you are right. What I meant was our millitary developed the hell out of it and were the first to use it as a technology of engineering. Hence logistics engineer. Good job on making me look like a total tool by the way. What would the world be without anonymous internet hate-slinging...?

I think that the full body suit was much cooler. It had a special helmet thingy with lights and the works. Plus, if the whole suit is rigid, you wont get broken ribs when you get shot. With this stuff, when you get shot, you are likely to walk away with *at least* a massive welt. With the suit, you prolly dont feel a thing.

This armor would be good protection in addition to the ceramic plate chest armor. This type could cover everything else and at least give some protection. Sure, there`s going to be bruising/broken bones, but that`s better than having to dig a bullet out, or having to worry about infection in an open wound, isn`t it?

The slow motion shot of the bullet bouncing off was cool, but I doubt it would stop multiple rounds in the same area like from an assault rifle. Kevlar and ceramic plates are still good protection.

Someone here said it`s not oobleck, but a mix of powdered glass and liquid. Surprising how no one else noticed that from the movie.

splurblyburbl: Yep, logistics is a very important concept. It has indeed changed the face of business. Now, science is full of examples of different scientists coming up with ideas independently (see Leibniz, Newton {both civilians!} and the discovery of calculus, without which science couldn`t have progressed anything like as far as it has). My point is things get developed sooner or later as and when there is a need, and building on what has gone before. It just happens that usually the military get there first. That doesn`t mean somebody else wouldn`t have sometime later. True, technology does come on in leaps and bounds during war time, but do you think that`s a good enough excuse for wars? Without wars we might not have so much Stuff (yet), but I like to think we`d be better off as a race. Oh and by the way, the US military did not invent logistics. The ancient Greeks did. Look it up.

IGMO, everything that you find out about is declassified which is another way of saying that something better already exists... you just won`t find out about it until ten years from now. DUMASPERE, military intelligence is not an oxy-moron... moron. If it were not for all millitaries AND war we would not have many, MANY technologies we have today and this includes logistics. Of which every single major company MUST uttilize successfully in order to be successful. The U.S. Military invented logistics, look it up. DERANGEDINGO, good points, but to elaborate: A high caliber round hitting this stuff could create a shock that also causes internal bleeding or brain damage which would be impossible for field medics to diagnose or treat in the field. Sometimes an entry wound is a good thing. Besides, the bullets are not necessarily what is killing our troops right now, it is the IED`s. The shockwave from some blasts are sometimes enough to tear your insides apart. (but leave your skin intact.)

It isn`t oobleck... sheesh, it`s a non-newtonian fluid JUST LIKE oobleck, but it contains billions of little ceramic and glass particles. LISTEN TO THE MOVIE
So if you get shot... BAM, bullet bounces off and you get a really bad bruise on your {leg}
then it regains its normal properties

And I assume it`s meant to just stop rounds from entering your body
So, someone takes a few potshots at you with an assault rifle and.. maybe the impact will break/fracture a bone, or give you a MEAN bruise, but you don`t have any entry wounds
And the kevlar and trauma plates on the chest would still be there I hope

It wont hurt as much in that halo suit, and the halo suit would be very intimidating.

igmo, if the discovery channel or whatever knows about something like this, chances are military intelligence (oxymoron) everywhere already know about it. anyway its not that easy just to "learn how to make it", im sure its taken years of R&D and $millions in investment.

It looks kool but i have a question...

if they dontwant iraq to know about it, why post it on the internet? i mean someone sent to spy could just possibly livein the U.S.A. could say "Hmm im bored, maybe theres a website to help that" and then he types in www.i-am-bored.com and says "OHHH LIQUID ARMOR?!" and watches it, emails the information to iraq, and then they learn how to make it...use it..and then the war never ends...

don`t mind me though..i always need logical answers to my questions..

Yea! maples has saved us all with his cup of corn flour and half a cup of water! how could our military have over looked such a vital substance; a substance that has been known to 6th graders for decades?

anyway...the clip never said that the soldier was harmed to begin with, yet at the end it says that he would not be harmed a second time with this armor.

I thought the guy in the Trojan suit looked & acted like a moran...who needs a clock in the crotch?

I agree with koalameatpie, with such flexibility, a suit made of these materials would still do considerable damage ie:broken ribs, severe bruising, extreme sack slap.

on the whole this stuff looks like it can keep our troops safer, and anything that does that i love.

Is it just me or would I still rather be in the halo suit. You`d probably feel the impact way less than with this, thus being able to go father in combat. Also, wouldn`t it be fun having rock-hard kevlar poking you where it hurts?

or just shoot him twice in the same area. maples from the video i get the impression (might be wrong) that the liquid undergoes some kind of permanent change to solid when the shock hits it, unlike oobleck. if so, its probably this instantaneous change that makes the bullet bounce off. so a second bullet to the same place might well go through this layer and the thin kevlar underneath.

^^I agree, I was expecting some futuristic liquid that is impenetrable but instead it was just some basting liquid (heheh). Anyway, that would be great if they can work out the kinks (if there are any). Hey, maybe in ten years, the US will be invincible!...wait, oh crap.

What if, for example the whole-body armour were made from that material, and then you jumped out the back of a truck?
I wonder if the sudden force of landing on the ground would be sufficient to activate the hardening of the material? And if so, over what sort of area?

The last thing you`d need is to be encased in a rock hard shell of modified kevlar... heh.

Amazing.

But if if it does stiffen up, I imagine You`ll still have some broken ribs.

No penetration, but you`ll still be hurting lots.
