RPG-7 PET (Plastic Bottle) Launcher

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Marudai has introduced this model RPG-7 that fires liquid-filled bottle rockets from what looks like pressure induced by a common bicycle pump. It retails for approximately $360 US, but as far as I know it’s only available in Japan; better find an importer if you want one of these.

Bulletproof iPhone 4 Case

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Japanese company Marudai has created what is possibly the most awesome yet impractical iPhone 4 cases ever. It’s awesome because it can stop a .50 caliber bullet. It’s impractical because, well, it can stop a .50 caliber bullet. Specifically, in order to stop such a round the case features a backplate made from one inch of steel armor, weights 4.6 pounds, and has a hole drilled into it so the onboard camera is even usable. Additionally, only the back of the case is armored, and the phone requires a second case (which comes included) so it doesn’t get damaged while nestled inside its protective shell. When you factor in the almost $650 US (52,500 yen) pricetag, you’re looking at a novelty paperweight at best.
