Liquid armour 'can stop bullets'

The researchers have combined this "shear-thickening" liquid with Kevlar to create a new bullet-proof material.

nice, they are finally putting that thing to work. i remember tv shows was done on that wonder liquid where the more pressure is put on it the harder it gets. was developed as a new generation of bullet resistant coating or impact pads for sports.

only downside is that knifes can still easily pierce through it like butter

They have some stuff that is like that in motorcycle protection. I don't think our stuff will stop a bullet but it will GREATLY reduce the PSI if an impact. They make snowboard beanies out of the stuff now too.
