I want this when it comes out this Winter!

Not sure how expensive it'll be but it sure promises to be some great protective gear!
The stuff is called d30 and its apparently flexible armor which hardens in an instant on impact and inmediately after the impact dissapears, becomes flexible again!

Can you imagine the applications when it comes to motorcycling apparel? No more bulky armor pads perhaps, just this material and a thin hard shell as they recommend in their website. Here's a link to them.

Here's what I am thinking I'll buy soon as it's out:

Blurb re the above from d30:

The men’s range of Thermatics first layer garments have d3o placed in the direct contact areas such as the elbows and knees to provide lightweight, flexible protection.

Thermatics d3o Crew: Wicking thermal knit; d3o protective elbow inserts; Thumbholes; Articulated body; Drop tail hem

Thermatics d3o Pant: Wicking thermal knit; d3o protective knee inserts; No side seams for reduced chaffing; Articulated body; Gusset fly with peek hole; Logo elastic waistband

Of course, no motorcycling gear announced yet, reviews by creditable sites will have to be made but you have to admit it shows promise.
