About: I am a British Graphic Designer and Photographer, when I am not working, I spend my time making an array of projects. I used to make a lot of props, but now I spend most my time building crazy cameras and sh...

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.

    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.

    Does it amaze anybody that no one commented about what a pain it would be to carry that much weight?

    TARDIS wallet: When they open the wallet, it disappears and appearers your back pocket. Bonus: It's bigger in the inside, so it can hold more money/cards.

    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

    Wait--Astronomy Wallet! When they take it they are forced to learn astronomy, thus giving you time to escape, get the police, and return!

    Puppy wallet! When they open it, an infinite stream of puppies attack them with cuteness! :D or maybe it shoots out a bunch of dead puppies. I guess it depends on how long you have the wallet before you get mugged.

    hahahahahahahahaha hmm, pistol wallet? your wallet is your CCW!

    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.
    Hmmm, maybe a bit bulky, must work on that idea...
