d3o

d3o is a specially engineered flexible material made with ‘intelligent molecules’. They flow with you as you move but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy. In other words: This material is very flexible and malleable, until subjected to abrupt force. making it useful in protective clothing in situations where the wearer may be exposed to blunt trauma but has to remain agile. Recently, the material has been used in the production of protective garments for all sorts of sports, (motor)cyclists and even for your laptop.
