I posted on page 2 but basically dragon armor is made of ceramic plates glued in overlapping patterns. The glue became unstable around 140 degrees or so and the plates slid around. I'm sure they are trying to find a better glue, but I think for applications in the states, it's perfect. I think the next generation body armor for the military will be something similar.

If I had to bet the next innovation will be the liquid body armor. But I honestly haven't been keeping up with things.

Back in the early 2000's there were tests up at Drum for climate suits. Now that's something to look forward to
