Bulletproof skin This actually, and surprisingly, is not a DoD project. A Dutch artist, Jalila Essaïdi, who uses biology as an artistic medium, was intrigued by a commercial attempt to have a genetically modified goat produce milk containing an extra protein that could be extracted and spun into spider silk thread. Spider silk thread is, according to Phsy.org, “stronger than steel on a per weight basis” with a ratio of strength to density exceeding that of steel. Essaïdi wondered if the human body could produce the thread, could it lead to “bullet-proof skin”?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
