PC Pro writes about a new fabric called d3o, it's a shock absorption material that looks like orange goo. This material will be used for future laptop bags, MP3 players and mobile phone cases.
What’s clever about it is that it’s soft and flexible in its natural state but goes hard on impact, as Mr Roberts ably demonstrated on a recent visit to PC Pro. He extracted a large lump of what looked like orange goo from his bag - the goo, he told us, was the raw material behind d3o.
Then he placed it in on the table and proceeded to hit it with his fist with the sort of impact that would have been enough break his knuckles with nothing in the way; but he didn’t even wince..
