¥52,500 ($672 USD) for the super practical bulletproof case. I’m not surprised the bullet didn’t penetrate the case, nor am I surprised the phone wouldn’t power up. That is a heck of a lot of energy transferred to the phone which it obviously wasn’t designed to take.
A bit of a flawed test though considering it’s unknown whether the round caused the phone not to function or it it was from when it flew and hit the rocks. Fun though, either way.
RR started the youtube account to get girls and shoot iPhones, and he’s all out of iPhones:
I really wish Richard Ryan would take FPS Russia’s place in the YouTube gun video world.
This iPhone 5 shooting video was predicable because he’s done it 4 other times. Still, why not flex that first world muscle and destroy something a large percentage of the worlds population could only dream of owning if it brings in the google ad money like clockwork? It’s just good business for Richie.
Destroying expensive things seems to work well for getting viral exposure.
So this ClearPlex stuff is bullet resistant? Impressive… seeing as I operate daily in high risk operations and often get into firefights, it would be nice to have. Hopefully they make Android screen protectors… I don’t mess with Apple.
It kind of looks to me like she didn’t get any direct hits on the ClearPlex iPhone, besides that one in the bottom corner. I would have liked to see a less hipster, more scientific test.
I’m really at a loss for words with this one… It would absolutely make my day if I ever saw someone using any of those setups in real life.
Isn’t the whole point of night vision in special ops to also remain hidden in the darkness while you’re scoping things out? How’s that going to work with a big display screen lighting everything up? Even on the lowest brightness, those screens are still plenty bright when in the dark. Is the point of using a screen rather then the regular eye piece so that 5 guys can be huddled around it at once? If not, what is the point? There is a lot of extra bulk, especially on the ipad example in the pic… but i’m thinking that particular setup might be for a tri-pod or vehicle application.
The eye-pieces on those things must be pretty strong if they can take mounting like that and resist a decent amount of shock.
I thought there was a chance this might just be a troll, mainly because the Special Operations Apps website looks suspect and doesn’t have any real info on it. Some more digging though, which lead me to US Night Vision where they sell the iPhone mount and iPad mount for $269 and $499 respectively. *facepalm*
It will be nice if/when night vision cameras are mirrorless someday. This is one piece of technology that looks like it’s stuck back in the 90s.
