Truly concealed carry

Posted March 21, 2016 into Science and Tech by John Birmingham

A dip o' the propellor beanie to GuruBob for the the link to this piece of kit, a smart phone that transforms into a gun.

Well, actually, it's not a smart phone, it just looks like one. But it's the sort of thing I can imagine a 21C character like Julia Duffy carrying in her lady bag.

Maybe for WW 3.1 next year.

From the product page at IdealConceal.com:

"Small enough in stature to fit in your pocket, the pistol folds into an inconspicuous smartphone when in safety mode. Flipping off the safety, however, transforms this small carry into a fully functional pistol. The mechanics of the pistol allow for a lightweight one-piece design that boasts trouble-free operation with a hammerless control for maximum safety, high velocity, and accuracy. The piece also comes equipped with a flashlight and laser."

The one Jules is carrying is probably a smart phone AND a gun.

Interesting coincidence.

Warren Ellis was talking just a month or so back in his newsletter about 'weapons research which led me to a really odd little handgun called the Taurus Curve.'

I have to ask though: would Jules be happy carrying something she might get confused with something else (like her actual phone) in her go bag when reaching for it in a hurry?

Jules doesn't strike me as the type to confuse one with the other.

I think a consummate professional tends to choose the best tool for there work, these hybrids have to compromise to achieve the multiple functions.

It why you don't see chefs use pocket knives or professional photographers use phone cameras or human beings use bing.

Great concept, but I think that is all it is. I've e-mailed a couple of times-but recieved no reply. I have the feeling this is just some Uni design project, with the website still hosted so people can farm karma on reddit :/

Wait, so the next AoT series will be WW 3.1, 3.2, etc.? I guess that's not surprising, but I still hadn't seen it before.

Yeah, it looks like a sweet Uni design project.
Can't wait to read AoT 3.1
