Spider Silk, or Reality of Playfulness

Lol, /. discusses a paper today about genetical modified silkworms that will be able to produce hybrid spider silk, ‘the new material [that] could shake up the textile industry, [and be] used in everything from bulletproof clothing to artificial tendons“.

To produce armored clothes from spider silk is nothing new in the World of Warcraft; I wonder if we can talk about accurate anticipation or a direct impact of games on technological developments.
