    Yep but I keep up with technology!

    D3O is pretty amazing.
    It is flexible like rubber or foam but on impact it gets stiff to absorb the impact. It then returns to it's flexible state.
    You can hit it with a hammer and it will get hard then return to being flexible.

    I don't know where they would incorporate it?

    Not good in the interior it would get hard on impact and probably do more harm than good with someone impacting it. I think for it work properly it needs to be worn close to the body.
    The idea is to spread the impact across a larger area just like hard body armor but to be flexible and more comfortable when energy dissipation is not needed.
