We've seen chainmail t-shirts, now scientists at the University of South Carolina have created a wearable armor-type material that is soft, lightweight, stretchy and generally feels like a material. By fusing boron with the carbon in cotton, they were able to create boron carbide material--the same stuff that shields military tanks.
Since this material is fabricated at the nanolevel, this material could be used for any application in which lightweight, tough materials are needed like in cars, planes, emergency shelters and more. Would you rock this wearable armor?
