Over the last semester, the focus of my Capstone Project in Innovation in Engineering Design, was the creation of a new body armor system focusing on weight reduction and flexibility.  Compared to body armor systems currently available, my body armor system allows a greater level of maneuverability while increasing the level of effectiveness at protecting the user of the system.  Although testing has not yet begun, it is a design that is very promising, as it will not only be a more flexible system but it will be lighter, as well.
