DailyDirt: Novel Materials… And We're Not Talking About Books

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

History used to be defined by materials: the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, etc. We don’t really do that anymore… now that there are so many novel composite materials with properties that far surpass simple alloys or ceramics.

For your reading pleasure, here are just a few more examples of materials that could help improve our lives.

Well Mr Bond, it seems you are still alive. Why of course I am, I had my iphone over my heart which stopped that bullet cold.

On another note…

I watched a show last night that talked about aerogel. Very cool. Especially since it was discovered in 1931. I’m amazed we don’t have more material derived from it yet.
