    Man, I would like one of those, if nothing else, it would be fun to play with,

    One question,

    Extensive testing has shown that conventional ballistic fabrics treated with STF can resist penetration by an ice pick that would otherwise easily penetrate the fabric.

    The saturated fabric can be soaked, draped, and sewn just like any other fabric.
    no ice pick, but it can be sewn

    That's been around for thousands of years but has yet to be perfected.

    Pretty crazy. I played video games in the 90's that talked about nanotechnology. Now it's a reality.

    When you sew, you don't hit it dynamically, so you don't cause the STF to harden. Probably wouldn't stop a stiletto or icepick either. Thin blade - little displacement/shear.

    (warning - OT)
    I like the way the author of the article references the relative size of one nanometer, as if that had anything to do with nanotech. Nano is just a prefix that means 'small'. A flying spy camera robot that looks like a fly is an example of nanotechnology, but contains nothing on the scale of a nanometer. The uncredited author of the article doesn't know what the word means, so he just assumed the relationship between nanometer and nanotechnology was direct and numerical. Also, he didn't bother to check this assumption, because he apparently isn't trained to check himself for assumptions. The state of education today is something to behold, isn't it?

    Oops, I digress. Sorry. This is one of my pet peeves.

    It's not too far off. The Army recently tested (and may now be issuing) cooling equipment for our body armor. I think it only operates when you can be attached to a vehicle (by a hose) but the soldiers testing it seemed pleased.

    I saw an item advertised that connected a hose from your car dash vent to the top of your vest. Looked like it would get in the way more than anything.
