Non-newtonion liquids was always a very popular lab day. I wish we could have done something on the scale of the one shown (in the linked video from the armor story) but going outside and playing catch with balls of liquid was cool enough.

Yeah there's a similar thing that you can do with a cornstarch solution too that gets rigid when you shake it. It's fascinating.

I've done that cornstarch one- where you slap the puddle of solution and it's like hitting a brick, but if you slowly press your hand into it, it sinks. THat armor sounds insanely cool.
