Hey Patrons!
 
  Have you ever wondered what the future of ballistic armor could be like?
Are you a veteran of the military or law enforcement?
If so you know how heavy and bulky our current armor systems are, ceramic is only good for one shot, but weighs 30 lbs, and AR500 steel is great at stopping an incredible amount of rounds, at the high cost of a set weighing around 60 lbs. You may have followed things like dragon skin, and other promising new armors, and exo-skeletons, and that guy from Canada that made a halo bear suit thing..... These all faded away into the recesses of the internet....probably for a reason.
 
  However, I have a proposition, I've seen a glimpse of the next level of armor from a man who proved it was possible to mix plastic and graphene and stop a 7.62 x 39 round at 100 yrds.
Now, he still has one video up on YouTube, Robert Murray-Smith's channel, however his videos have been withdrawn, after he proved it a viable option, for whatever reason, he isn't pursuing  the armor, instead, I've decided to.
 
  So i set out to study my a** off to bring forth a 3D printable armor, so I got make the material from scratch and test it by shooting it and blowing it up. and of course, if you're a patron, you will get to be a part of that!

 I will be updating my projects as I go, and posting video as much as possible, please be patient, I'm not good at video editing yet.
 
Let me tell you what my goals are; I want to:

• Finish making the compression mold, the equipment I need to build to melt the plastic with the graphene at a high pressure and heat.

• Make different ratios of graphene plastic for testing.

• After finding a suitable ratio of graphene plastic, I will try reproducing it into 3D printing filament and test it as well, if comparable to steel in stopping ability, then...

• I will make a completely 3D printed breastplate, and test it to the best of my ability to the army testing standards

• During all of this i will be updating Patreon to keep all of you involved in the process,
I hope together, we can make history! Thank You for your time and patronage!

At $3000 I'll be able to start making and experimenting with both the level III ballistic plate insert for use with modern tactical gear, as well as prototyping a working ballistic NBC combat helmet with visor and internal communication and a drinking system.
