Ok, i made this a few years ago, and recently re-found it.
The idea behind the concept, was that if mugged, when the mugger says 'Give me your wallet!' you can actually give the mugger your wallet, clean round the face.

The construction was simple, i bought a set of marble floor mosaic tiles from my local diy store. I seperated the smal squares, the stuck them together using super glue into a rough wallet shape. I then Stuck the two sides onto a piece of leather, then added two side pockets to hold notes.
<p>On search for a slim and minimalist wallet I cam across this and it made me cuckle. It's a brilliant idea, even though its the exact opposit of what I'm searching for.</p>
Does it amaze anybody that no one commented about what a pain it would be to carry that much weight?
did anyone else notice like 90% of the comments are people with [PRO]&nbsp;
now i do<br>
Not anymore...
I was thinking of a wallet containing a flash capacitor and some pieces of metal with a covert switch then when you get mugged , secretly turn on the switch and give the mugger a surprise! Just don't shock yourself!=D
OK, how about this: the finger-print recognition wallet!! If some one who isn't you opens it, they get a blast of ... oh I don't know ... pariliysing gas? in their face, accompanied by an ear-splitting siren. <br /> Hmmm, maybe a bit bulky, must work on that idea...<br /> *wanders away, lost in thought*
Why not nerve gas and little rubber balls? Just like a stinger grenade.... &gt;:3
that... is simply... genious. you get a gold star!
Hmm.....You would have to wear a very tight belt!!
Its ok, i don't actually use it.
ypu should carry it around. just incase.... muahahahaha (:&lt;
how is it anti-theft? because you could beat the would-be thief senseless with it?
yep
... (awkward silence time)
yay!!!
I usually scream like a girl and throw wild haymakers, but this is more like what James Bond would use.
funny haymakers hahahahaha
lol
James Bonds, would have a flick out knife, and lasers..
i have several sharp pieces of metal which i call my wallet. it's shaped like one but really is a rubberband and spring powered shrapnel grenade.
Yeah, thats just illegal..
no; i'm just nuts. it's not really <em>that</em> sharp, and it hurts to have it in my pocket.<br/>anyway, the way it stops theft is that anyone who's handed a wad of random metal and told it's a wallet will just stare.<br/>
Awesome idea! How about... a shurikan wallet!
prehaps, but marble is more resistant to time fade than metal...
is it? Learn something new every day...
And would you really want a metal shurikan in your pants?
Maybe if it had retractable blades with a release mechanism that wouldn't trip accidentally.
Wouldn't it be easier just to carry a knife?&nbsp;(x<br />
I should try to make on of those. but I might just try the retractable blades first, and add the wallet part later.
Now that sounds cool
Probably not...
Like, did you know that cows were first discovered in the Grand Canyo
jk couldnt help it
Laser wallet, nothing can beat that
THAT&nbsp;IS&nbsp;A&nbsp;GREAT&nbsp;IDEA......damn i should have thought of that!
you should make a electromagnet and a piece of metal in it.<br /> thief accidently pushes button in wallet and ...BAM 3-4 broken fingers<br />
Not really logical, I&nbsp;mean having something that weighs a lot in your pocket.<br /> Just make it a shocker with a switch inside and than give it to him.<br /> <br /> The way it would work is you wouldn't have the shocking part on the inside, only the outside, and you would have a strap on the wallet so you could give it to him without getting shocked.<br />
or, you could put it up your pant leg, push it up to your pocket, and put your hand in your pocket and grab it w/ teh pocket... like the dog poo bags, and when you get mugged, literally turn out your pockets and look like ur broke and no wallet..................................
or maybe electroshock wallet
just hope you never need to use it
That's really cool. It made me laugh also.
cool, very cool.
Thanks
lol, i thought you hide it in your tile floor so no one could find it (at first)
long before I saw this i made a duct tape wallet with the same principal i stuffed washers between the layers to give it weight. then i had a friend hit me with it and needless to say i had a welt for one or two days
Haha! great idea. i have to admit, my marble wallet is a little bit tounge in cheek
5/5 stars!
yeah we are all into self defense type things and this Instructable reminded me to dig out that wallet because it still had 20 bucks in it.
And you'd definitively notice the weight difference if you were pick pocketed! Then again, you'll probably develop some back problems after carrying it for a few days.
