Armstar BodyGuard is a Gauntlet for your iPhone
by Mark R
In case you are wondering, this is not where Batman stashes his iPhone when he is patrolling the streets of Gotham. I mean, do you see any armblades there?
No, this is Armstar’s BodyGuard 9XI-HD01, and it is made from cotton, Kevlar, as well as Nomex, a flame resistant fiber. It is made with a slot for housing your iPhone, and it is also made for charging your iPhone as well.
Other features on this gauntlet include a 720p video camera, a flashlight, as well as a 300,000-volt arc device for stunning people. There is also a rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack for recharging other electronic devices.
The ArmStar BodyGuard isn’t meant to be a superhero iPhone accessory, but an idea of Dave Brown who created this “in response to a string of mountain lion attacks near his Southern California home”.
I wonder if we will be seeing more devices like these for smartphones. In all honesty, if I was a professional bodyguard and I saw an ArmStar Bodyguard, I would be on alert. I would probably be on my shoulder radio saying: “We have a Batman arm here”. You can forget about boarding an airplane with this.
The ArmStar BodyGuard 9XI-HD01 can be purchased in quantities of ten or more, but I don’t have any word on a price.
