Hey heres something very cool. D3o labs have developed an "impact suit", designed initially for skiers and the like - "The material that d3o uses is a mixture of a viscous liquid and a polymer; once the d3o material has been synthesized, it is poured into a mold according to the application. When at rest (or when gently flexed), the molecules within the material can flow past one another. When a sudden deformation is applied, the molecules lock, forming a shield." Now how cool. You can basically fall from a great hight or impact with something and barely feel it. (scroll to "body")
