During our secondary interview with Ms. Kendall in Frankfort, Illinois, she was gleaming with the interest and offers running in for Ballisticks and what she may do, she stated this to us:
“I am ecstatic about the implications of the innovation, I recently spoke with my prototyper and he expressed that what I have created is so new to the ballistics genre, he shared with me that I have created a morph of hard ballistics and soft ballistics. It has the strength and protection of Hard Bullet-Proof products and the flexibility and comfort of Soft Bullet-Proof products. He tells me that this has never been done before.”
Kendall is also being publicly honored at an annual ceremony in Los Angeles, California by a well-respected STEM Organization in June 2014 for her accomplishments. Even though all of her innovations have not made it to market, she is well respected by her scientific peers and they have went on record about her Ballisticks innovation as well.
Here are the words and reviews of a trusted colleague in the field of science/technology and he also works heavily with composites; this is what he shared:
“Ballisticks is the world's only flexible anti-ballistic body armor, allowing soldiers, law enforcement, and private logistics personnel the motion and protection they need to execute their assignments in the field.
Until now, protection composites have been hardened, producing rigid structures that for bodily protection such as hardened Kevlar®, limit mobility and leave penetrable gaps between plates that can expose the wearer's joints and other locations to ballistic attack. In addition, rigid protection often requires heavy positional support to keep the plates in place, increasing weight and further limiting the maneuverability of the wearer.
Never before accomplished in the composites industry until now, non-rigid bonding catalysts in the resin, infused through the fabric using a special compression technique, allow the Kevlar® fabric to remain bendable, malleable, and pliable, while yet retaining its anti-ballistic properties.
This result allows Ballisticks not only to be applied on the traditional vital areas, but also on interior joint and non-traditional points usually left susceptible to exposure by the industry standard.
In addition, due to being pliable, Ballisticks responds to the motion of the wearer conducive to clothing, allowing Ballisticks' adhesive pads to remain in place through lightweight means, further increasing the maneuverability of the wearer.
Ballisticks introduces a paradigm shift in personal protection, offering unparalleled physical security and mobility for the warfighter, law enforcement, and private logistics personnel to operate successfully in the field.”
These descriptions are staggering and we will soon see the product in action. Kendall’s prototyper is to provide her with a “Stop Motion Video of Ballisticks”
Kendall has been invited to interview with her product on several top local news channels as soon as the product is ready to go. As stated before, we can’t wait to see what Ballisticks does and how it will update the scenery of instant life protecting products.
