It's also amazing that Shear Thickening Armor seems to get brought up in gaming forums year after year after year like it's a brand new development, when they've been working on it since the 1970's.

Yeah, I just find it amusing.

Across every gaming or sci-fi forum I frequent, at least a couple times a year, every year, someone will come on exclaiming, "GUYS! GUYS! I just saw this new armor that is sooo cooool!".

You're not the first, and I suspect you will not be the last.   ;D

its been in development for years, hell natick soldier centers has been promising, new lighter flexible body armor as far as i remember.  gel armor is good idea if i works for something other then lab conditions, and pistol ammo.  I can see police officers getting it before grunts.
always Double Tap.
