Believe it or not, Japan's criminal underworld of the Yakuza made headlines recently in Fukuoka for a string of gangland style shootings. Now the tech-centric country has a literally bulletproof solution for its more iPhone-obsessed thugs.
The Bulletproof iPhone 4 case from Marudai is a 1-inch thick armor plate steel covering for your smartphone designed to stop a direct hit from a bullet. And, just so you understand that the case really is about stopping bullets, the company will even send you a commemorative 12.7 millimeter dummy bullet. But protecting your precious gangster contacts from a hail of bullets won't come cheap, the case costs about $648 here.
