Polish research institute Moratex has created an amazing liquid body armor that can protect you from bullets.

The substance called shear-thickening fluid (STF) is unique in that its viscosity changes with the increase in applied force, meaning that the liquid absorbs the impact of a bullet and prevents any major damage to organs.

Researchers claim that it can be used as protective inserts in sportswear or even as car bumpers or road barriers—it is also not difficult to imagine it as part of a superhero's suit.
