Tech Team Circumvents Gun Control Debate by Creating Practical Fix to Provide Protection Against Gun Violence in the United states.
A tech-minded e-commerce team has developed an innovative, people-first solution to ease anxiety over the scourge of school shootings. The invention, named the CoverMe-Seat, is a lightweight, carryable self-supporting seat that can be converted into a bullet proof vest. All in all, the conversion can be accomplished in less than five seconds. The portable seat protects the wearer’s body from powerful handgun rounds and includes an insert for a rear plate that can stop ammunition shot from a high-powered rifle like an AR-15, which enables it to be superior to most standard vests, backpacks & jackets.
“No one wants to worry about protecting themselves and their loved ones in a mass-shooting scenario,” said Practical Protection’s Founder, Aaron Ansel. “Our lawmakers should be working hard on an approach to ending mass shootings which we back, but until that becomes a reality, this is an effective, timely solution that doesn’t require any laws to start using.”
The stadium-style seat is more effective than bulletproof shields and backpacks because it shields the front and back of the user. Also, with the supplementary plate, you are protected against high-powered rifle bullets, something that almost no other body armor can do in such a practical way. CoveMe-Seat weighs less than six pounds, less than a six-pack.
Andrew Enke, Chief Engineer, has years of experience in the medical device industry. “I designed the CoverMe-Seat to be both effective and simple. We started with the assumption that nobody is going to want to wear a bulletproof jacket every morning. We wanted to get around the assumption that bulletproof protection requires you to compromise some other aspect of your life.”
