BAE. Conventional body armor, consisting of Kevlar and ceramic plates, is not only heavy, but impedes mobility. Moreover, as it doesn’t disperse impact, a direct hit can still result in serious injury. The new liquid metal immediately hardens upon impact, and disperses the energy over a wide area. Combined with Kevlar, weight of body armor is reduced by 45% and mobility is enhanced. The dispersal characteristic also reduces likelihood of severe bruising or internal damage resulting from projectile impact.
