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.
