    Just seen too many "academical inventions" that seem to be isolated from real world.

    Tex-lock was hot kickstarter few years ago. Bicycle lock made of synthetic fibers, pretty difficult to cut with bolt cutters.

    Too bad they didn't consider other tools. Pocket size small hacksaw goes trough tex-lock in 8 seconds

    I suspect that special made serrated edge knife would be even faster than 8 seconds.

      I'm with macona, the gallium will mess up the matrix to the point where you can break the bike lock with your hand.

        No, I get it.

        Just sayin that I just watched a video of an angle grinder being destroyed trying to get through this "stuff". ( original post )

        Maybe I'm just easy to impress.

        Wish they would have showed more tests showing it's armor capabilities.

        That tex-lock thing is junk in comparison.
        John Titor, when are you.

          Well, to be fair, the guys here *can* be brutal.... just not as bad as on that other site

          Maybe I'm a little strange because I believe that all ideas deserve a fair chance.

            So just what acid will dissolve aluminum?
