My Tank Can Beat Your Tank

April 25, 2010

It may not be too long before your tank-tops are made out of the same material as, well, tanks.

The University of South Carolina created an amazing new material that mixes cotton jersey (as in Homer Simpson’s t-shirt) with boron (as in one of the strongest materials on earth).  The end result is a lightweight, t-shirt-like material that’s bullet-proof and UV resistant.

This must have been inspired from a comic book.  Superman would have had one of these t-shirts.
