did you know?
d idgou k n . oom
Toronto' s Garrison Bespoke has
created a discreet and comfortable
suit for clients who work in
dangerous environments. The entire
suit uses nanotechnology
to act as a shield, and it' s 50% lighter
than Kevlar.

Sir we're going into a danger zone, I think you should wear kevlar.

No that won't be necessary thank you.

Alright suit yourself.

hypex, therealtjthemedic: Not nanotechnology like nanomachines, nanotechnology like carbon nanotubes. Perfectly logican.

logic is a funny word

Thanks. I was thinking along those lines but it didn't really click.
User avatar #42 - thegrayfox (08/24/2014) [-]
While I don't doubt that I can actually stop a bullet... It will also shatter your entire ribcage wherever the bullet hits you. Kevlar is great at stopping a bullet from going though it, but the sheer force of the impact is like being hit by a metal baseball bat in the chest, and kevlar doesn't stop that. So you will survive, but you'll have a broken ribcage and possibly some internal bleeding.
User avatar #59 to #42 - roflnaut (08/24/2014) [-]
Still, it is probably better than an actual shot to the chest.
User avatar #29 - bakinboy (08/24/2014) [-]
how effective is it compared to regular body armor
#7 - hypex (08/24/2014) [-]
Nanotechnology? come on man you could atleast try

gotta go with therealtjthemedic on this one and call ******** , nanotech is still in what you would call the theory phase, they have no idea how to create robots so small and then program them, its all science fiction at this point

you're a special kind of retard
User avatar #8 to #7 - heraske (08/24/2014) [-]
There is a video of it being demonstrated. They shoot it with a 9mm I think and the bullets didn't penetrate. However, being shot with one of those tux's on would leave unfathomable bruises.

It's made by some single word company, like garrison or something.

It costs ~20,000$, not sure what currency, probably murican

Bruises < Bullets inside you
User avatar #10 to #8 - hypex (08/24/2014) [-]
yeah i dont doubt its made of some really neat material or something but saying its nanotechnology is utter ********
User avatar #61 to #10 - KillinTime (08/24/2014) [-]
it's correct though, nanotechnology is defined as manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. In fact you probably encounter nanotechnology every single day.
#36 to #10 - Aftershock (08/24/2014) [-]
Making new, improved materials IS a large part of what nanotechnology is concerned with. Nanotechnology isn't necessarily robotics, it's basically just any technology on the nano scale.
User avatar #12 to #10 - heraske (08/24/2014) [-]
I think it consists of graphene if my memory serves correct. It's a 2D material, which, in proportion, stronger than steel. (This is all from as far my as I can remember, I could be incorrect.)
User avatar #9 to #8 - heraske (08/24/2014) [-]
Oh **** the company's name is in the picture.
#13 to #7 - thechosentroll (08/24/2014) [-]
Nano means "tiny"
Technology means ******* "technology"

Nanotechnology just means they use really tiny **** . Like really, really, really, REALLY thin and tightly-woven threads, which is basically what Kevlar is, anyway, just bigger. Nanotechnology here means they just made thinner kevlar. It doesn't imply ******* nanomachines crawling all over you and stopping bullets.
#14 to #13 - hypex (08/24/2014) [-]
but thats what nanotechnology normally means
is this like the local news with their big ass headlines and then saying later "well, its not exactly what the title said but if you look up the textbook meaning of the word then..."

thechosentroll replied to my comment, should i feel something?
#16 to #14 - thechosentroll (08/24/2014) [-]
Well, yeah, they're just using it as a buzzword. What sounds cooler "Company makes bulletproof suit" or "Company uses nanotechnology to create bulletproof suit"?

Also, why would you care that I replied to you?
User avatar #17 to #16 - hypex (08/24/2014) [-]
but its a misleading word, it bugs me D:

and its because youre funnier than phanact and joshlol
User avatar #18 to #17 - thechosentroll (08/24/2014) [-]
Everyone's funnier than phanact and joshlol. It's not an achievement.
User avatar #19 to #18 - phanact (08/24/2014) [-]
You sound sour because I passed you in thumbs
User avatar #20 to #19 - thechosentroll (08/24/2014) [-]
Nah, I just sound like that by default. Though I admit it kind of sucks to know that someone else is level 400 and has more red thumbs than you do.
#21 to #20 - phanact (08/24/2014) [-]
Yep. Sour.
Yep. Sour.
User avatar #22 to #21 - thechosentroll (08/24/2014) [-]
Yes, that's what I just said. I always sound sour. Your ability to state the obvious is as keen as ever.
#41 to #21 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
**** off you ******* retarded ********** .
God dammit the only good part of you ran down your mothers thighs and stained your parents sheets.
#49 to #19 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
>caring this much about thumbs
So what spectrum of autism are you.
User avatar #56 to #14 - munchlord (08/24/2014) [-]
No, that's what science fiction shows and books have made plebs like you think it means

Nanotechnology is and has always been technology using means and structures on the nano scale, most of which is creating new materials.

Your oppinion is as wrong as the marketing idiots sticking nano in front of whatever for no other reason than to sound fancy.
User avatar #38 to #14 - hellomynameisbill (08/24/2014) [-]
you watch too much science fiction
#24 to #14 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
yeah cause Sci-fi shows invented the word nanotechnology.
User avatar #45 to #13 - unstoppablegiggle (08/24/2014) [-]

User avatar #32 - BowChickaBowWow (08/24/2014) [-]
But does it stop Rifle rounds?
#39 to #32 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
Kevlar doesn't even stop high power rifle rounds, so I greatly doubt it. It's probably meant for smaller handgun rounds. **** , even with a kevlar vest, if you get sprayed with 7.62 rounds the most the vest is going to do is keep your (exploded) organs inside of your body in a neat, dead pile.
#40 to #32 - anon (08/24/2014) [-]
Apparently it can stop handgun rounds from .22s to .45s.
User avatar #48 to #40 - MatthewsGauss (08/24/2014) [-]
so nothing that can normally penetrate armor
User avatar #31 - demandsgayversion (08/24/2014) [-]
**** man, wear that everyday, pretend you're Batman

That explains the suit in payday 2.
User avatar #5 - ishallsmiteyou (08/23/2014) [-]
I personally improvised a knife/arrowproof vest out of 2 carbon steel sawblades, 6 leather straps and some bolts. Bolted them together with the straps and now I've got a light, flexible vest that fits under T-shirts, jackets, sweaters, etc. It won't stop anything over a .22 though.

Nanotechnology? Really?
Doubting this **** .
User avatar #52 to #4 - killerliquid (08/24/2014) [-]
carbon nanotubes

**karvarausku rolled image** when I was still in vocational college around 2008 there was some research of doing special vests out of some special spider web that was lighter than vests and more durable.
