Smart Material for Protective Clothing and Impact Protection

A new material which is set to revolutionise the way we protect our bodies from impact and injury is being launched by specialist technology company d3o Lab.

d3o Lab were granted a government SMART award in 2001 and following a significant breakthrough they secured a second award in 2003 for the development which is now nearing commercialisation.

Since 2000 Richard Palmer and Dr. Phil Green have been working out of the University of Hertfordshire's research and development centre, and a design studio in London on this exciting new technology.
