$650 case protects iPhone from .50 cal round, doesn’t help with the ladies


If you’ve ever thought of going into a warzone and worrying about stray bullets hitting your iPhone, then this enormous (and hugely impractical) iPhone case made by Japanese company Marudai may just be for you. The company says that the back of the case is made from a combination of steel and aluminum and can withstand the impact of a .50 cal round – the same round that’s fired by heavy .50 cal machine guns and the Barrett Light Fifty anti-material sniper rifle. Of course, if said round impacts the front of the device (where it literally has zero protection) you’re out one iPhone and one hugely impractical case.
