Nano Armor

nym | 01:08 PM
Just like in The Diamond Age, nanotechnology proves to allow us access to stronger and stronger materials. An Israeli company has developed a material that is stronger than steel, although they have yet to be able to produce large quantities of the substance.
According to IsraCast, an Israeli company has created materials made of inorganic fullerene-like nanostructures (IFs) which have amazing shock absorbing properties. During preliminary tests, these materials, which are five times stronger than steel, have successfully resisted to steel projectiles generating pressures as high as 250 tons per square centimeter. These materials could be incorporated in "nanoarmors" able to protect soldiers or police forces within three years.
