New Super Nanospheres could make stronger armour than Kevlar

A new protein treated witha special protective layer could be used to print uniforms and/or armour to provide a meterial stonger than Kevlar.

The story from popsi below continues…

“Developed by researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science and Tel Aviv University, the nanospheres are similar to the beta-amyloid proteins that make up the plaques found in the brains of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. But the new nanospheres are reinforced with an additional protective layer that makes them really, really strong.”
