Introducing an Inflatable Bullet Proof Safety Pod That Flies

Between terrorist attacks and natural disasters, humanitarian aid responders are always looking for ways to save more lives and make their jobs easier.

For the first time, a bullet proof inflatable shelter that flies is being conceived called Project Life Shell. Right now, the idea is only in concept phase, but designers are looking to raise $50,000 in capital through IndieGoGo as a way to bring a prototype to fruition.

Not only does this design make for an ideal emergency shelter for war torn areas, but it could also be a must-have item for any die-hard prepper. 

Similar a zorbing ball, which is a life-size bouncy ball used for recreation, the Life Shell would inflate using a series of air tanks on hand. With impact resistant kevlar, the dome would be both bullet proof and fire proof. 

It would also have the ability to fly through a mechanism similar to a hot-air balloon. Both internal and external airbags along with a parachute would ensure a safe landing. Impact sensors would also release additional airbags where needed. 

In a promotional video for the project, engineers show how the shell can be used to escape a burning building, a sinking ship, a crashing airplane or to survive a war torn neighborhood. 

“Motivated by the latest news of shocking earthquake and natural disasters around the world we thought of a device that can potentially save thousands of lives and avoid casualties,” product engineers write.
