A suit of armour for the 21st Century January 20, 2007

From the man who invented the Bear Protection Suit comes this all new suit of armour for the modern military and police. The suit is only 18kg in weight and is made of high impact plastic, bulletproof cermic and ballistic foam – it can defend against clubs, blades, bullets and even explosives. If it really is light enough to wear, and manoeuverable enough to be practical, then I can see this being a big hit with both the military and the police – and it’s not going to hurt if it makes you look like RoboCop, either.
