Instant Armor

Abstract:
When danger looms in the new Matrix movie, the heroes step into flexible armor. The U.S. Army wants something even more amazing for our soldiers - uniforms that turn into lightweight armor on command. As this ScienCentral News video reports, one nanotechnologist says that instant armor could be real in ten years. At Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies is dedicated to using nanoscale science’s potential to produce a protective uniform for the U.S. Army.
