A Seattle man has invented a portable chair that doubles as a bulletproof vest in a pinch. The gun debate continues after the recent high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and this startup says it has a solution to gun violence in the form of a bulletproof vest you can sit on.
The product is made of several high-tech layers of plastic fabric called Prydwen that can stop handgun bullets from at least 20 feet away. The product also comes with an optional plate that can stop a high-powered rifle round that inserts into the vest. Aaron Ansel is the founder of the startup called Practical Protection and he says the Prydwen can be used for public outings, offices, and schools.

The creator designed the product to convert quickly from a portable chair to a vest but says he wishes he didn't have to create it. "The market is unfortunate. It’s not a product that I even think should have to be on the market, but for me, it’s mostly about the technology. It’s the fact that we have technology that’s available to stop extremely high-powered guns," Ansel said.

Mass shootings are a reality that many have had to face, just last October the Las Vegas shooting claimed 50 people. Investing in a bulletproof vest with some discreet functionality might be a good idea. The Prydwen vest sells at the companies website <a href="https://www.prydwenvest.com/">www.prydwenvest.com</a> for $100.
