Novel, Multi-Impact, Energy Diverting, Energy Absorbing, Repairable Helmets

Executive SummaryThis technology addresses brain injuries while wearing a helmet. A novel technique adds an outer layer to helmet shells to absorb multiple impacts and divert energy away for the skull to reduce concussions. The innovation can also reduce projectile penetration in a way that is repairable and re-healable for low or multiple low-velocity...

Isotope Tagging For Workpiece Authentication

Executive SummaryOver the last 50 years, the U.S. Department of Justice has ranked art crime behind only drugs and arms in terms of highest-grossing criminal trades. While many incidents go unreported making it difficult to estimate the volume and total economic value lost, Interpol estimates have put the losses worldwide due to forgery and theft at...

Improved Hydrogel Technology for Tunable Energy Absorbance

Executive SummaryHydrogels have been known for decades to be capable of absorbing significant amounts of energy largely due to their unusual ability to hold substantial amounts of water. However, these gels often struggle in applications that require large amounts of deformation. MSU researchers have discovered a novel material additive to not only...

User Authentication via Keyboard Typing Behavior

Executive SummaryBiometrics (the measurement and analysis of physical or behavioral characteristics) can be used to identify and authenticate an individual, and to manage access to sensitive information or resources. A limitation with use of a single-point physical biometric (such as a fingerprint) is that access may be granted indefinitely, even after...
