Just think of how far you could launch a water ballon with a giant slingshot made from this material.

Or for that matter, think about a water ballon MADE from this stuff...starts off the size of a quarter, fills up to be the size of a beach ball.

Or a tampoline!

Man...the uses really are endless...

"We are mainly studying this as a tough material. It happened to be very stretchable, but it really is tough."
