 The new light-weight material could eventually replace the “thick, heavy-layered plates” of Kevlar used in existing bullet-proof vests.

Researchers at BAE systems in Bristol combined a “shear-thickening” liquid with the existing material used in bullet-proof vests – called Kevlar – to create the new armor. The chemical formula of the new liquid is being kept secret but scientists say it works by thickening and becoming sticky on impact with a bullet.

New Technique To ‘See’ Fingerprints On Fired Bullets


Scientists have developed a technique for retrieving fingerprints from fired bullets

A scientist has fabricated a new technique to ‘see’ fingerprints erased from fired bullets.  Alex Goddard of University of Leicester has developed a technique that involves studying the chemical and physical interactions occurring between the metal and the fingerprint sweat deposit — which have been overlooked until now.

Smart Rifle That Fires Radio-Controlled Bullets

Smart Rifle:  Fires Radio-Controlled Bullets

The XM25 rifle is being developed for the US army.  

A rifle is being developed that will fire radio-controlled ‘smart’ bullets that will target enemies no matter where they hide.

The XM25 rifle uses bullets that explode when they have travelled the set distance showering the people below. Soldiers will be able to use them to target snipers hidden in trenches rather than calling in air strikes.
