Applying for a job with the secret services or just protective of your iPhone?
Either way this is an instructable for you.This holder can not only withstand bullets and pellets from low caliber guns and air rifles but is stab proof, protects your smart phone from falls, from hits by a hammer and even will survive someone jumping on it , I have tried and tested these ( yes, I have even shot at it) as you can see from the second picture .
In fact you can make a holder for just about any phone (you could even make one for an ipad) its just that the dimensions which I will give in this instructable will be for an iPhone 4/4s. If you would like me to post an instructable to bulletproof a different device please leave a comment.
In this instructable I will teach you how to build a bullet proof iPhone case from materials which are more readily available and cheaper than pre-prepared bulletproof materials such as Kevlar.
This case will cost you approximately $25 / £15 compared with about $90 / £60 for a pre-made bullet proof plate.
-55 x 20 cm sheet of mild steel , 3 mm thick ( this is in total but you can easily get several smaller bits of steel as long as they are no shorter than 14 Cm and no less wide than 10 Cm )
-firm foam sheet A4 sized and at least 1 cm thick
-epoxy resin (I used Araldite)
-fairly tough cloth ( can use thick clothing etc)
- small neodymium magnet
- metal file
-black spray paint (optional)
-gun to test !
The first step will be to cut out to size your armor plating:
1) take your mild steel sheet
2) draw onto it 5 rectangles each 13 x 6.0 Cm
3)using your hack saw (if you have a mechanized saw this will speed up the process) cut them each out
4) file down the edges until they are flat and smooth
These plates later on will be mounted on top of each other along side some further plating and will act as the main armor to stop the bullet. If you would like to bullet proof your phone to high caliber and velocity bullets you will need to cut out more of these plates.
