30 Indestructible Armor Innovations

Constant Protection, from Metal Bikinis to Robocop

— August 11, 2009 — Art & Design
Protection is the key to survival (not that kind of protection:well, maybe). These armor innovations are keeping the world safe by its inspiration throughout multiple genres.

Fashion-inspired armor is chic-safety, while doggy armor is powerful pooch protection. These armor innovations will give you a feeling of ease whenever you leave your house!

Implications - While combat is something most people will not likely endure, the old style and feel of knights and ancient warriors is appearing all across the board. There is little need for head armor in this day and age (especially if it is bedazzled), but it has been seen walking down prestigious runways. This trend is all about being "in-your-face."
