Every Little Thing The Reflec Does

MIT looks to be close to developing armor in real-life that's very similar to Reflec armor, for those of you who played the Traveller role-playing game. And even those who didn't.

Scientists there have created mirrors in fibers that could be woven into cloth or made into paper. They'll reflect radiation that's aimed at them.

Didn't Kenner perfect the really tiny mirror, for use by Barbie? I mean, they had to. She can't just look like crap when she's hanging out at the beach with Skipper all day, or riding horses, or wearing a business suit, which all girls can aspire to do when they grow up.

Plus, that type of armor leaves you answered with a question mark.

And yes, I did this entire story just so I could make Duran Duran references.
