In this podcast inventor interview I talk to Richard Palmer who is the inventor of D3O. D3O is a protective material that is soft in it normal inactive state but locks together on impact. These properties make it ideal for many uses including protective clothing, sports wear and protective cases for electronics. Richard explains how D3O works, how he developed the material into something that was commercially viable and the difficulties he encountered when he was first trying to raise money for its development.
