This unique art project might actually work. (Read the complete story)

"An age-old wish; didn't Achilles' mother do this for him? Not sf, of course."

"Not a novel, but in the old Cyberpunk role playing game there was something like this called skinweave that used nanotechnology to weave polymers into your skin for enhanced protection."
(Kazlaton 3/30/2011 9:12:14 AM)
"Piers Anthony, Sos the rope has a kind of Vevelar/Ballistic nylon embeded under his skin. It was supposed to make him blade and bullet proof. Unfortunately when the surgeon implanted the "armour", he managed to sterilise (read castrate) poor Sos."

""Highways in Hiding" had bulletproof skin, but that involved virii and six months in a "kinetics" bed! Not the optimal choice."
(Kelly 4/3/2011 9:13:55 AM)
"Remember that it was because they were in a post-cataclysm world, and were a very poor attempt at a Foundation-concept, so didn't have all the proper equipment/training/etc to do the upgrades safely. It was explicitly stated that before the war such a surgery would have been relatively safe and commonplace, at least for elite soldiers, but they were having to use equipment not actually designed for the purpose."

"Oops, I've been using IRC too much recently. That last post was me, in response to Andrew..."

"Wouldn't it be great to have bulletproof skin!!!!!!!!"

"This is one of the coolest, yet creepiest technologies I've heard of. "

"Here's a brief quote from Sos the Rope by Piers Anthony: 'The surgeon placed flexible plastic panels under the skin of his belly and lower back, tough enough to halt the driven blade of a knife or sword.'"
(Bill Christensen 8/16/2011 6:35:36 PM)
"The Fallout series games had subdermal implants one could obtain for their character. Not exactly bullet resistant transgenic skin, but functionally similar."
