The playdough is a pretty pooty shock absorber. He'd be better off with pretty much any foam, or even cloth or a bunch of tiny springs than play dough, which can be made with flour + water + colorant.

To expand on what scienceguy47 is saying. It is basically a non-newtonian fluid. But this one in more of a solid putty state. Lots of cool videos about it on youtube and Mythbusters did a bit to run across a body of "water".

isn't this the same concept as non-newtonian fluids?

HOW IT WORKS:
the polymer in the putty, when stimulated slowly, can unfold easily without much interference. EG, the other particles in the putty (i.e. water) are pushed out of the way along with the polymer

when it is hit with a lot of force, the H2O in the polymer is quickly squeezed out of the affected area and the polymers are exposed, and they tangle up, forming a solid-like state.

sorry if its confusing

Oooohhh, Aaaaahhhh... Oh wait, it's called SILLY PUTTY! It's been around for like, 60 years!

Too bad I never thought of using it as armor. That's some cool ass non-linear thinking.

"it's a drating rubber mallet"
that would still hurt, rubber mallets are still heavy they just don't scratch up the surface

This is called a non-newtonian 'fluid'.

First time I remember seeing some thing of this was when they used it for beanies for skiers to wear on the slops. Then just a standard beanie was like a helmet and still comfortable. Then etnie started putting it in the heel of some of their shows for skaters/bike riders for when you have heavy landings.

@Willowwatch

I've discovered that much, but there arent a whole lot of products as of yet that use the material. I've found a bunch so far but many of them are via companies based solely in europe (which would make sense)

Still, interesting to know that if I did want to spent the insane monies the products are there. (mostly kneepads, gloves and other misc protective gear)
