Transparent aluminum

Air Force testing new transparent armor:

Engineers here are testing a new kind of transparent armor -- stronger and lighter than traditional materials -- that could stop armor-piercing weapons from penetrating vehicle windows. The Air Force Research Laboratory's materials and manufacturing directorate is testing aluminum oxynitride -- ALONtm -- as a replacement for the traditional multi-layered glass transparencies now used in existing ground and air armored vehicles.

If we can just get those darn transporters working you won't need the car.

Sadly enough, I get the joke of "Beam me up, Scotty."

Am I one of the few who loved the movies with the cast of the original Star Trek series?
