Submission + - Backpack carries books and stop bullets (

Pyrotech7 writes: Only $300, also offered is Tactical Vest. In the wake of last week’s horrific shootings in Connecticut, we’re sure to be seeing a lot more products like this cropping up. Made by Salt Lake City-based body armor company Amendment II, it’s called the Ballistic Backpack, and it’s designed to protect its wearer from bullets.

Although the backpack could conceivably be used by anyone, it’s no doubt intended largely for use by school children – previous models even came with pictures of princesses and The Avengers on them. The idea is that it will protect the user (or part of them, at least) as they’re running away from an attack, or serve as a shield if held up between the user and an attacker.

Just when you think you have seen it all a Ballistic Backpack to make our schools safer.
