Kevlar can pop up in the oddest of places, y'all. But we think we can trump it with this: Kevlar wallpaper. It goes by the name of X-Flex and it's the fruit of a partnership between Berry Plastics and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Unroll the wallpaper sheets and apply them to the inside of brick or cinder-block walls, reinforcing it with fasteners at the edge.
X-Flex works so well that the armed forces are considering redecorating its army bases in Iraq and Afghanistan with the stuff. And, mindful of the commercial value, Berry Plastics is considering manufacturing a version for civilians — perfect for the tin foil hat brigade, no? Catch a video of it in action below.
