  • Blastproof used glass against explosives at MIT Design Competition

    August 21, 2014

    "When a shock wave hits the armor panel, it crushes the glass spheres and dissipates the energy from the blast," Cody Jacobucci, who finished his first year at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) this summer, told the nine judges. It was not unlikely that his team would be one of 12 competing in this year's Soldier Design Competition, hosted by the...
