In the movies you see people falling into water after getting shot all the time. But apparently that also happens often enough in real life for someone to develop a bulletproof vest with an auto-inflating air bladder to keep someone afloat if they’re injured or unconscious.
Adamantium aside, the hockey puck is the strongest material on Earth. That’s only a little bit of an exaggeration since we’ve seen it survive liquid nitrogen, take on the vaunted red hot nickel ball and even put up a respectable fight against thermite. But is the puck bulletproof? Should we just wear hockey puck…
A laptop bag can protect all of your electronics as you bump into other passengers on a crowded subway, or simply get caught in the rain. But the MTS Multi-Threat Shield briefcase goes much way further than that—it can also protect you from gunshots, knives, and even physical attacks when unfurled into a three-foot…
Somehow a wall filled with these hard ceramic balls is bulletproof. It stops bullets from penetrating through the wall and even prevents bullets from ricocheting off the wall too. It's basically the best shield against a gun we have.
A bulletproof, air-conditioned, diamond-covered, $3.2 million suit? Even James Bond would drool over this. Not that it would matter; it's also waterproof. Naturally.
In the U.S. most of us are lucky enough to have never lived in a combat zone or area of extreme violence where our personal safety is always at risk. But this backpack was designed for that scenario. The Rhino Skin pack is made of Kevlar and is meant to protect vital organs against flying debris created by an…
Tragedies like the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School have certainly given parents reasons to worry about their children's safety. But is this really necessary? A Colombian company claims to have created a line of kid's clothing and school uniforms made from the same fabrics and technology found…
Say you've got some really important documents—like the meaning of life scrawled on a napkin, or a viable method of time travel in the margins of a newspaper—and someone really wants to shoot them for some reason, like a bunch of times, with a gun. You better hope they're in the Tegra-Lite Bulletproof Attaché.
If you find yourself living in a wartorn part of the world—dodging gunfire and errant shrapnel all hours of the day—a bulletproof iPad case might not seem like overkill. But for the majority of iPad users, this resilient case does nothing to protect the tablet from more immediate and pressing daily threats.
When you're in a warzone, it's nice to take the slightest comfort in knowing that someone tested the armor you have strapped to your chest, crotch, and arms. But according to a new Pentagon report, the Army botched it hard.
Kevlar. The world is lousy with this stuff: from body armor to tires to shoelaces; from to suspension bridges to the Ove Glove. But when Kevlar was invented 45 years ago, it didn't look like something that could save a life. It looked like a mistake.
Let's say you really, really need to rob a bank, like in under four minutes. But there's all this pesky bulletproof glass between you and the terrified tellers! If you can relate, take a tip from this industrious Chinese bank robber, who understands that "bulletproof" glass doesn't mean you can't axe the bejeezus…
I don't know what your office holiday party is like (I would if you invited me!), but around here a bulletproof clipboard would have made caroling with coworkers a whole lot less terrifying.
When it comes to bulletproof material, I think of strong, dense objects like concrete and really thick glass. I've never thought of liquids. But British scientists have, and they say liquid armor is better than ordinary Kevlar.
I am pleasure to know you from Internet! Forget Viagra! Forget software! Forget Rolex watches! You need bulletproof attack vehicle! Combined riot shield Explosive-proof blanket! Navy patrol boat! Blast prevention torch! Best regards, Mr. Frank.
Say what? A Kansas City woman with a tight weave gets shot at by her boyfriend through a car window. Later, the cops find a spent bullet in her hair. Did the hair stop it?
Jesse Jackson choked on his sandwich on CNN when Barack got out of the Beast and walked in the open, unprotected air. Thankfully, the reverend could have relaxed: BHO was wearing a bullet-resistant suit.
I've finally found a bathtub that'll give me the ultimate peace of mind: A tub that's both bullet and bomb proof. The catch? It's made out of glass, which makes it completely
