Silly putty is wierd stuff. Push slowly and it deforms, whack it with a hammer and it shatters.
There’s probably a good technical term for this but in general, it’s fun, wierd, stuff.
A cop friend has a body armor vest with steel plates in it, it’s bulky and doesn’t move well. (They make him buy it himself, too - it’s not issued. Cheap bastards!) I was thinking that there should be some cool silly-putty-like material that a vest could be made with- under normal movement it should flex and move but hit quickly it should be stiff.
Anything out there like this?
