Robot built out of acrylic

  1. Nov 24, 2009 #1
    What are the properties of acrylic? I am building an acrylic robot that is hollow and shaped as a ball and needs to be able to absorb an impact from a 3 story building ( 20 foot drop)... It can be covered in some polymer or other material. Anyone know of any materials that can absorb the impact?
