The US Naval Research Laboratory announced a major breakthrough in materials science on Thursday. After decades of research and development, the NRL has created a transparent, bulletproof material that can be molded into virtually any shape.
Can't wait when they use this glass for smartphones; bullet proof smartphones, I like the sound of that :)
what about super soakers ? that would ruin a phone without water proof
The question is "does it realistically protect against the kinds of weapons seen in the war zone?"
If by weapons, you mean Rocket Launcher, Tank Shells, and Bazooka, then no
Obviously, but I meant more along the lines of what it can handle, ex: .22 long rifle, 39 mm, 45 mm NATO, .300 Winchester, .50 BMG.
