Bear Proof Suit Put To The Test
from the some-people-have-issues dept
Okay. So, he’s already won an Ig Nobel award, but now it looks like the creator of the $100,000 bear-proof suit is looking to get a Darwin Award as well. He’s decided it’s time to test it on a real, attacking bear. It’s already been tested against trucks, baseball bats, axes, arrows and bullets. However, the suit was designed to be bear proof – so it might as well be tested against a bear. The guy sounds a little nervous: “Little things like trucks and baseball bats and axes and things – you don’t feel that. This is a bear.” The suit, by the way, is made of plastic, rubber, chainmail, galvanised steel, titanium – and lots and lots of duct tape (proving that it really is duct tape that binds the world together).
