    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>10/17/2005 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFPN) -- Engineers here are testing a new kind of transparent armor -- stronger and lighter than traditional materials -- that could stop armor-piercing weapons from penetrating vehicle windows.</div>

    I'm sure this material could probably have some non-war applications too. :ninja:

    Hopefully over time the production cost will go down and the material will be cheaper.

    yeah but time could be a few yrs.... some people don't want to wait and other places might produce it cheaper if they know how to make it.
