Bomb-proof wallpaper protects walls (Video)

275x250.jpgA wallpaper has been released which promises to protect a wall from a wrecking ball or bomb blast - should you need it.

The X-Flex paper - developed with the US military - is not like the wallpaper your Granny had in the 70s, but is more suited to protecting soldiers in Iraq.

It is made from Kevlar-tye sheet which is held between to sheets of elastic polymer wrap which act to absorb energy of a blast or impact.

This means that after users roll it out onto a wall, just like a conventional wall paper, it will offer incredible levels of security.

The only problem we can see is that as soon as you put the wallpaper up, you are going to want to test it with a wrecking ball -- just like in the video after the link.

A spokesperson for makers Berry Plastics said: "We are excited to be able to introduce a truly unique and unparalleled product that is going to save lives, reduce injury and offer another level of protection to soldiers, military personnel.

"In areas where threat risk is high, X-Flex helps provide a measure of safety that was previously unavailable."
