Badass Useless iPhone Cases

Well I guess not entirely useless I suppose… you be the judge:

.50 BMG Proof iPhone Case – If your pockets are big enough, and your fear of taking a round to the femoral artery is more of a concern than your coolness.

$650 USD at this sketchy Japanese site

And finally…

Knuckle iPhone Case – If you’ve ever wanted to send a text message and a physical message to someones face.

$99 at Knucklecase.com

Who would have thought that when you bolt an iPhone onto a huge chunk of armor, the armor still works?

I’d buy the brass knuckles one if it wasn’t illegal in MA.

I would have to have a .50BMG rifle, and that stupid case, and a stupid iPhone to test it, but I wonder if the bullet would impart sufficient energy to the case to embed the whole thing in a person’s body…

I’ll eat my iphone if that case can stop a .50 BMG.

There’s a possibility that their case might be made out of 500 Brinell hardened steel though which apparently stops .50 BMG, especially at that thickness. The iphone surviving that shock even though it’s solid state is probably an issue though.

I wonder what would have happened if he framed up the steel and had it filled with something like Tannerite. Would it work as reactive armor?

While uselsess as a weapon and likely to get you some jail time if a cop sees it on you… the knuckle case at least would make sure the phone didn’t slip out of your hands.
This puts it as being slightly more useful than the slab-o-armor with a phone bolted to it.

Who would be planning on getting shot with a 50 BMG round anyways?

Dude I am actually terrified of being shot in the femoral artery. If I was an operator operating I’d be wearing all kinds of ballistic shit on my legs!
