• Get A Bulletproof iPhone 4 Case

    No case is ever protective enough, yet we have been able to drop a naked iPhone 4 from an airplane up in the air and find it on the ground unscathed. Interesting concept; right?

    If the Otterbox or Tank iPhone cases arenít protective enough for you, then maybe itís time to question your way of life Ė or at least to get a heavier, larger iPhone case. This case (pictured above) is very thick, very heavy, and itís bulletproof. The case is capable of defending your iPhone against a direct impact from a 50 caliber (12.7mm) bullet, which is a massive round. However, you might have more things to worry about than your iPhone's safety if youíre trying to defend against 50 caliber bullets.

    The case features an anodized aluminum front with proper openings for the iPhone's screen, ports, sensors, and buttons, however the rear is the bulletproof portion. The rear side of the case is crafted from one-inch thick steel and it is attached to the aluminum front of the case via four screws Ė one in each corner. The caseís dimensions when assembled are 138mm ◊ 81.8mm ◊ 39.6mm and it will weigh 2.1 kilograms (about 4.6 pounds) with the iPhone inside.

    Unfortunately, because the case needs a one-inch thick steel backing to be bulletproof, you can assume the camera quality is going to suffer a bit. Not only will you not be able to use the flash properly, however you will basically be taking photographs through a one-inch thick steel tunnel, which will frame all of your photographs with a circle. But what's more important: protection or taking photographs?

    The case comes with a complimentary 12.7mm dummy bullet cartridge so you can have a souvenir to tell all your friends about your cool new case. You can purchase the bulletproof iPhone case from Marudaiís Web site, costing 52,500 Yen, which is about $650. The site says the case is compatible with the iPhone 4, however it does not make mention of the iPhone 4S. We assume it would fit the iPhone 4S too since the two iPhones have the same body style.

    This case is more of a story piece than a practical iPhone case, but collectors are always out for things like this. Let us know if youíll be buying one!

      Craziest case ever, but the screen still isn't bulletproof

      a well aimed shot would go right down the hole for the camera. Proof no case will really protect your iPhone.

      Lol at thinking a .50 could go through that tiny hole. I like your style though. Maaaaaaybe a 5.56 could squeeze in.

      I doubt a 17mm could do that, however if it was a ballistic tip that has potential lol

      Seems a bit extreme. Probably the dumbest thing I read online today.

      I couldn't find a reason for someone to want this.. If they work in the field.. 1. They couldn't afford it (way under paid(( )
      2. For 650 they would rather get something else..

      Definitely a waste of time and money. Probably won't fit in your pocket, camera quality is lessened, carrying the extra weight around, etc. The cons outweigh the pros...if there are any.

      To be honest if I still had my $5K tax refund in my safe, I'd purchase this in a heart beat. Unfortunately, that $5K has been spent already.

      If someone is firing a gun at you I think the least of your worries is your iphone.

      For $600.00 I'd buy a real bullet proof vest and tuck my thin iPhone in it.
      It may not stop a 50 cal. But if you've got a trained sniper stalking you, then he/she will splode your melon from 1000 yards with a vest OR a super iPhone case...
