Just because they could – bulletproof iPhone case

Whether you live in a rough neighbourhood or just have fingers covered in butter, this nigh-indestructible case is just right for you

We've all been there – 3am, dark street corner, on the brink of a criminal underworld drug war arrest. Sure, you're kitted out with a helmet and a riot shield, but what about your precious iPhone 4 or 4S?

Roughly £406 (52,500 Yen) is all it takes to encase your precious iDevice in this bulletproof – and entirely ludicrous – iPhone case by Marudai, which wraps your iPhone in 1in thick armour plating. That should ensure it will survive the most gruelling of challenges, even if you don't.

You'll even get a 12.7mm dummy bullet with each purchase to remind yourself what you're up against. Now if you'll excuse us, we're off to patent a rhino-proof USB stick. You never know what life might throw at you after all.
