OLD CELLPHONE STOPS A BUL­LET

In Touch (USA) - - Omg -

While Galaxy Note 7 cell­phones are ex­plod­ing in own­ers’ pock­ets and spark­ing house fires, an old Nokia ac­tu­ally stopped a bul­let. “A Nokia phone I worked on a few years ago saved the life of a man in Afghanistan last week,” tweeted Peter Skill­man, a for­mer Nokia em­ployee, on Oct. 4. The de­sign exec did not ID the man but in­cluded this photo (right) of the makeshift life­sav­ing de­vice, com­plete with “the em­bed­ded bul­let.” It may not be smart, but it sure is strong!
