Forget bullet-proof vests! We want bullet-proof skin!
Dutch scientists have created a skin made with goat's milk packed with spider-silk proteins that is able to STOP bullets fired at reduced speeds!
Key word being "reduced", as the super-human skin can not withstand a bullet from a .22 caliber rifle shot yet, but maybe one day!
Researchers have already grown human skin around the strengthened material, but need more time to determine whether or not the bullet-proof skin can actually be engineered into humans.
We're totally picturing a genius, but troubled scientist begging his financiers for more money, which is being denied after one crucial test went wrong. Now he must be the first human test subject for the risky procedure which inadvertently turns him into a bullet-proof super villain bent on getting revenge against those who threatened his life's work!
If only science was actually THAT exciting! LOL!
