Boffins have created a liquid body armour suit that hardens and absorbs shrapnel on impact using - 'bullet-proof custard'. Researchers have produced the chemical formula and have combined it with traditional kevlar to create the 'super armour.' The suit works using a viscous compound which, when attached to traditional kevlar, absorbs the force of the bullet and responds by becoming thicker and more sticky. The pioneering technology has been created by a team of scientists at the global defence and security company BAE systems in Filton, Bristol.
