Saw some of this shit for the first time today....

alomost completely useless to the general public (us military are adapting it to be used as flexible armour... a bit like a full body armour suit)... but its pretty cool... Magnetic liquid.... acts like normal liquid except when you put a magnet next to it, it goes solid... weird... and its well cheap aparently... they are selling it in newsagents and gadget shops now...

anyway... just wondering if anyone else has seen this shit? its crazy!

wow, thats pretty cool. dont know how they can transfer that to body armour though. surely the liquid, in solid state, is still pretty fragile. if you had that as body armour it would be so cool though. you could give yourself a name, like.. liquid man. or something better

hahahah!! nah man... it feels pretty damn hard... and aparently its pretty strong... at the flick of a switch you could have the worlds most flexible body armour and then flick it back and youve got yourself some crazy solid as fuck armour plated suit on.....
