Australian scientists develop shark-proof suit from plastic fibers

Australian scientists from Flinders University have created a revolutionary new wet suit material to protect surfers from shark bites, even from Great White Shark. The new 'shark-proof' material is made of extra-strong plastic fibers woven throughout which doesn’t allow teeth to tear it. Two different types of fabrics have been combined to make this strong but lightweight neoprene material to develop the wet suits.
