After reading about EAP's, it got me thinking about stuff, which eventually led to my new and wonderous idea of electromagnetic assisted body armor! Now kevlar works pretty well (what IS kevlar anyway?), but I think it'd make a big difference if you could take a few 100 feet per second off the velocity of whats coming at you. Figure you'd use a halbach array, using electromagnets instead of permanent, and keep them juiced so long as you want the extra protection. Would a strong magnetic field help slow the bullet? If not, why not have alternate poles next to each other, so it will pull the bullet left or right and hopefully the bullet will be more likely to glance off the kevlar plate as opposed to hitting it dead on.
