Day 4 of 100 Days of Inventions - Protecto Gloves

Liquid Glove

Imagine you dip your hand into a vat of shiny liquid and slowly pull it out again.  Hey!  The liquid has hardened and form a glove on your hand.  Looks pretty cool, feels natural.  Fits like a glove (wink wink). 

But oh, the magic has just begun because this is no ordinary liquid glove.  This is the professional-grade solution to five-finger protection.   It's embedded with new electro-polymer technology that has the ability to instantly harden any section of the glove, making it rigid enough to withstand damage and enormous amounts of pressure.  No longer will you accidently drive a nail through your hand or crush your finger under some heavy machinery.

The Protecto Glove can sense when there is a pinpoint of high pressure or a crushing blow and in a matter of nano-seconds, the glove will divert energy to the contact point.  This energy excites molecules that harden the soft gloves in a way that provides the best type of protection - either on both sides if your hand is being crushed in a metal press or concentrated at a very small point if you are poking yourself with a sharp stick.  It's kind of like the Macross Pinpoint Barrier System, but for your hands.
