Re: d3o functional armor


It may need to be sandwiched between two layers of urathane or another option may be a fabric vest a layer of d3o and then an outer latex shell which of course could be moulded.

I was also thinking about lining my motorcycle jacket with the stuff.

I'm sure you would be able to tell me which of those ideas would be a possibilty without disclosing any secrets.

Wow. Amazing how close we're coming to the real thing Bat armor in less than 20 years.

Zane I think you already know you're my hero, but I figured it couldn't hurt to tell you again.
As I recall everyone was always so anti-functional; maybe I'm mistaken. But at least this might usher in a new age of suits. Not to mention bros getting stupid and arrested! :whack

Re: d3o functional armor


Is there any test data available to the public that shows the response times from the application of the impulse to the stiffening?

This stuff looks pretty amazing at first glance. I'd love to get my hands on some of this, slap a few strain gauges on there, and smack it around with a hammer.

Anyone know if the structure breaks down after repetitious impulsive loadings? I'm guessing that after a while it'll loose either it's pliability or it's rigidity just like anything else.

A corn-starch/water mixture looses the extra energy through heat. All of the applications I've seen for this involve cold-weather environments. I wonder if heat greatly decreases it's properties.

Re: d3o functional armor


There are motocross applications already out there, so it's not just cold stuff. As far as loosing it's properties over time or impact, I don't think it's really been out there for too long, and naturally they wouldn't advertise the lifespan if it were short. So we'll just have to wait and see.

Re: d3o functional armor


Hey Ben and guys, thanks for the encouragement. We'll see if d3o Lab responds to my request for a Non-Disclosure Agreement and subsequent tests. My hope is that d3o could completely replace latex or urethane for any parts of the suit, including the whole cowl skin. Then all we'd need is a little padding here and there(!)
