Slowburn April 18, 2012 01:55 AM I finally have proof that I am not the person that comes up with the most ludicrous ideas on earth. pipcola April 18, 2012 07:40 AM This may stop the round but unlikely to dissipate the energy especially if was in a pocket at the time................. Михаил Финогенов April 18, 2012 09:04 AM ^^ I'm with Slowburn :))) Mark Eastaugh April 18, 2012 11:28 AM 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." mhenriday April 18, 2012 11:41 AM 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....Henri Dave Andrews April 18, 2012 01:50 PM 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. Joe Clearman April 18, 2012 02:47 PM 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. Michael Liu April 18, 2012 03:23 PM What if I shot it on the front side? Richardf April 18, 2012 03:41 PM Thats real good news because now they can start making a 100 cal ? good news all around for baddies and goodies Alix Paultre April 18, 2012 04:06 PM 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.
