I just saw this article on Yahoo. http://in.news.yahoo.com/soon-bulletproof-human-skin-made-spider-silk-goat-061821339.html It was interesting, but on the other hand I thought "what could be the side-effects?". Do you think BulletProofSkin would be successful? (Truly, I don't)

Hi dear venky Not sure whether they would be successful or not but yes, they open up doors for so many scams in India.... There are more Politicians who would prefer to have such a skin (or dress) and there are high chances of scams... Lets plan to market and sell them here

Hi Sidhu... Our politicians don't need any modification of skin for bulletproofing. Already they are thick-skinned. Yet, no problem. We can market them to other officials.

Bulletproof vests stop the bullets passing through but they don't absorb much of the energy. It still hurts to get shot! With a skin instead, the pain would be even worse and compression damage is bound to occur. Therefore, I don't think it would be successful either!

Ah..yes. Good point. Apart from that, I suspect what would happen to the other functions that skin is meant for like sweating etc. Anybody would dare, even if it's said to be successful? (I don't think so.)

Friend I think this is not successful because no air is passed if bulletproof human skin is. Not sure about side effects but I think not benefits also.

Yes. Our skin also breathes. As the first poster said, the impact of the bullet, even bulletproof vests can't reduce. Let's see the outcome.
