USC scientists figure out how to turn t-shirts into body armor

Now that's cool.

"Boron carbide is the same stuff that's used to protect tanks, but the boron carbide nanowire fabric that the USC team created has the added benefit of being flexible, lightweight, and elastic."

lightweight, flexible, elastic material will simply not work without improved trauma plating. It doesn't need to pierce (the body armor's job) if it can crush (the trauma plate's job) everything inside.

But might this not add to the protection they already wear Doc?
