I finally have proof that I am not the person that comes up with the most ludicrous ideas on earth.
This may stop the round but unlikely to dissipate the energy especially if was in a pocket at the time.................

Hmm. that aint a 50 cal round in the picutre, and as far as the armour goes, it had better be hardened, and I would not want it in my pocket when it got hit: "with a capability of completely perforating 0.875" (22.2 mm) of face-hardened armor steel plate at 100 yards (91 m), and 0.75 inches at 500 yards."
Given the prevalence of firearms - and people ready and willing to use them - in certain countries, perhaps there's a market for these cases after all. Might just save more than an iPhone....

the 50 cal is pretty much the big daddy of available calibers. It doesn't really get any bigger with ammo regular citizens can easily get ahold of.
I can't imagine any possibility that the screen shown could stop anything near a 50cal. I've seen much smaller ammo go through 3/4 inch steel plate easily, and Mark's right. You wouldn't want to get hit with it even with the phone case protecting you. The force of that blast could potentially kill you without penetrating.

Good grief, a direct hit from the .50 cal. BMG. I don’t think so! Maybe they’re referring to the .50 cal. Action Express pistol round. A fraction of the BMG’s power, if true it’s still very impressive.

What if I shot it on the front side?
Thats real good news because now they can start making a 100 cal ? good news all around for baddies and goodies

I'm with Dave and Mark. THis thing is a joke. Forget even the energy dissipation at the point of contact, what about deformation of the steel? That thing is going to be bent with a couple of inches of distension, that would bend the phone in the case as well. Not to mention that inertia will drive the case several inches into your body.
