Bullet-proof clothing - A paper-thin material to stop bullets
Researchers have designed a new paperthin bullet-proof super material which can self-assemble into alternating glassy and rubbery layers.
The nanomaterial could translate into safety beyond vests. These advancements could accelerate progress on protective coatings for satellites and even jet engine turbine blades, researchers said.

A team of mechanical engineering and materials scientists from Rice University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created special materials that were able to stop bullets in the lab. [link to articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com]

Even if the bullets can't penetrate the clothing, what's to stop the clothing from penetrating the wearer?

Will it don't have to go into you to kill you. If a bullet hits you in the arm, leg or chest the impact can brack and miss crap up fast.

They should work on ways to disperse the kinetic impact as well to help with the blunt force trauma.

Would still penetrate and lead to bleeding .. but there would be no contact between zed and you.

This material is just some super-strong condom .. for bite and bullet protection it still needs something below to distribute the energy over a big area.

Big calibers still liquify intestines even if the bullets do no penetrate the vests

Radical!

I love to hear that nano-tech is finally bringing about useful products.

Even if no good for vests, I can think of about a thousand applications for a lightweight thin material that can take a frigging bullet.

Too cool.

Id imagine creating a layer of nanomaterials that could absorb shock is possible, but would be an extremely daunting task, since it would have to be layers and layers of springlike nanostructures.

The "gel" layer probably has something to do with dispersing shock.

Or just put another layer under. Why does it have to be paper thin? Wussies.

There is a liquid flexible armour that goes hard where and when a bullet strikes, a layer of this over the top sounds useful.

The design spec clearly said "must not penetrate material". If the material then penetrates the body...not their problem..."out of scope". Money please!!!

I'm already thinking of better uses for this material.

Instead of trying to keep bullets out, why not use the material to keep 'bullets' in?

Re: Bullet-proof clothing - A paper-thin material to stop bullets
To help you all understand how this material works so that you may wrap your mind around this (no pun intended).
This nano-material is designed to take the impact of the projectile and focalize it into a very tiny area, because of this the shockwave is dissipated over the layers of the material thereby making the impact millions of times less effective. The nano-tubes have formation memory and fill in around the projectile capturing it in its original position. This also allows for ballistic examination later by Forensics Labs, and use of course in criminal action or evidence gathering.

Because the nano-material is several hundred layers thick and the nano-material transfers’ energy through resonance from one particle structure to the next, it thereby nullifies the bullets effectiveness and damage to soft tissue and skeletal structure of impact point.

Hope this helps you understand better the properties of this matter.

How about some clothes with some thin metal wires in the cloth so when a tazar is used the current is dispersed through the wires rather than the flesh.
