This is pretty cool, Its amazing how many nanotech companies are starting to develop usable product, I think this one is killer

Conducts electricity. Is it safe?? As far as it being a wearable computer, I don't see that happening. New computer designs are out in the market periodically.


Twist it, stretch it double, fry it to 200C, douse it with jet fuelthe stuff survives. After the torment, it snaps like rubber back to its original shape, all the while conducting electricity like solid metal.


Some things are designed to break down. Environmental issues: Is it disposable? From the quote it seems unlikely.

How many metals do you know break down? Come to think of it does anything you own that has a conductive material in it break down? I highly doubt it. I hardly think thats a viable argument for saftey. Although I probably won't feel 100% safe in a plane made out of rubber, not that i usually feel 100% in aeroplanes now!

I think this a FANTASITIC invention! Imagine the possiilities! Single sheet newpapers that are screens. Mobile phones (with the built in everything of now-a-days) that you can throw at a wall as hard as you can, and they just bounce back! GREAT STUFF! Thanks MWM excellent post.

Sort of like the alien foil that unfolds its self. It would be great for stoping bullets and car frames.

Watched a show Discovery Channel about this new metal. HAs an extreme memory capability as described in metal @ the Roswell crash. My gut feeling is that "if" Roswell happened then most likely the reason for covering up incidents is due to some sort of time travel. Imagine if the government knew time lines were being manipulated?

As I was reading the news article the first thing that came to my mind was the "foil" described by those who remember the incident.

As for the time travel hypothisis, let us remember that New Mexico has been one of the most popular sites for the testing of all things experimental from atom bombs to aircraft. There is most likely a logical and quite mundane explanation for the Roswell incident.

I have to say though this is alot like the foil that was described at Roswell

That picture of it in that persons hand could be straight out of a Roswell movie.

The people back then that talked about stuff like this had no clue it was possible to make stuff like this

How would this material stop bullets?
and for that matter where would you incorporate it in the vehicles body?

Well it would stop bullets by deforming its self and the bullet and then snapping back. Its like the difference between aluminium and iron, aluminium crack under stress and iron deforms, this stuff bounces back after it deforms.

I'd make the outer sheet metal (except around the windows) out of it and the springs. Strenght (not hardness) is about how much something can absorb/deform upon impact and not break. However in new cars the make em so absorb alot of impact by using less steel and rigid supports, the car absorbs the impact and not you.
