New advances in nanotechnology will revolutionize clothing for soldiers on the battlefield. While bulletproof and camouflage vests have existed for decades, they have often had limited efficacy.

For example, the quality of a bulletproof vest was often contingent on its size. In many cases, it was not possible to produce a very high quality bulletproof vest that was also lightweight.:

In addition, modern camouflage also has significant limitations. The following guide explores how nanotechnology is revolutionizing both camouflage and bulletproof vest technology.:

Most early bulletproof vests manufactured in the United States were made of a special type of woven metal. After a bullet impact, this metal would dent around the site of a bullet wound.:

While this would protect the wearer from any significant health problems, it could be very bulky to wear.:

In addition, many early bulletproof vests could weigh over 20 pounds. This could make them impractical for use in real-world conditions.:

Modern bulletproof vests use specialized carbon nano-tubes to deflect the kinetic energy of a bullet. While these vests can be effective at stopping a bullet, many of them weigh no more than a traditional jacket.:

With carbon nano-tubes, it's possible to build a vest that will not tear. Most bullet injuries are caused when a bullet enters the body. This can cause extensive tissue trauma and bleeding. :

With a bulletproof vest made from carbon nano-tubes, the bullet will not be able to enter the body. The entire vests will stretch around the shape of the bullet. While an individual may experience bruising and a broken rib, he or she will not be dead after taking a bullet.:

In addition, camouflage technology has advanced significantly over the past few years. While early camouflage relied on obscuring one's appearance, modern camouflage can hide an individual around any background.:

With new nanotechnology, it's possible to bend light around solid matter. While this technology is still in its infancy, it will allow for an individual to wear an "invisible cloak" into battle. Like in the Harry Potter films, an invisible cloak will be an effective way to disguise one's current position.:

However, it's important to be aware of the limitations of current cloaking technology. While scientists have been able to bend light around solid matter, it's only possible to obscure the appearance of an object a few inches wide.:

It currently is not possible to obscure an object the size of a human. However, scientists are confident that new advances in materials will allow for this possibility in the future.:
