McLaren-Civilian-Body-Armor

McLaren Applied Technologies is the advanced technology, innovation and design arm of the McLaren Group (yes, that McLaren) that’s responsible for making impossible things possible in the worlds of motorsports, health & wellness, energy and transportation, among others. Their latest creation, Project Invincible, is a piece of body armor designed to protect your vital organs in case of impact. Well, not your vital organs. It was designed and built specifically for “Client X” to protect vital organs after a surgery, like an exterior rib cage. The final design is a rigid composite shield structure and bespoke base layer designed to protect from initial impact, transfer the load and attenuate it all while being slim enough to be worn under a dress shirt. This feat of strength was achieved with a combination of high-failure strain Dyneema fibers, highly-toughened resin, carbon fibers and the same Zylon fiber technology found in F1 cars. Project Invincible cost the client $250,000 when it was completed, which, considering the fact that this is like Tony Stark outsourcing body armor to the Wayne Enterprises Applied Sciences Division, doesn’t really seem all that expensive.
