Grapefruit Inspired Non-Cuttable Material

Grapefruit Inspired Non-Cuttable Material
A team of researchers have developed a new material that is non-cuttable. They called this new material Proteus,and has a 15% steel density. This materials is made of ceramic spheres, organized in a cellular aluminum structure, inspired by the skin of grapefruits. This structure allows it to withstand angle grinders, drills, and other brute-force tools.

The ceramic spheres, inside of the material are made in a way that will turn the drills or cutting tools attacks against themselves. Proteus blunts the tool by vibrating, and subsequently filling the matrix-like structure of tools with particles of ceramic dust, which makes cutting more and more hard. Additionally, Proteus can resist water jet cutters, even though they are rare.

This new material could be used to non-cuttable locks, and could also be used in the defense industry, to make next-generation armor.

Hi there, I believe your site might be having web browser compatibility issues.

Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
