Scientists create fabric similar to Batman’s cape | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of scientists from Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a fabric that is flexible in its natural state, but can be transformed into a hard material, similarly to Batman's cape. This “chainmail” fabric has the ability to stiffen, being 25 times stiffer and resisting 50 times more than its own weight. That is why it has a certain resemblance to the fictional cape that appears in the film Batman Begins 2005. In the movie, this one can become stiffer to be used as a glider. The scientists showed how the fabric changes by holding it in the hand in its light and flexible state. But when the fabric was placed inside a plastic envelope and vacuum packed, it increased its structural stress and hardened to...
