When it comes to Gadgets, I so freaking love military gadgets. The are not just cool and rugged, but the are extremely useful. Nations of the world pour out billions of dollars each year for military Research and Development, this is why most major advances in technology have either come from or was inspired by th military. The US for example spends over $600bn yearly on its military, with quite a substantial amount going into hi-tech Research and Development (R&D). Things like the GPS satellites were developed by the military but are now used by everyone. There have been hundreds of inventions that now take part in our everyday life that have either have their roots in the military or were inspired by them. Today we take a look at 5 very cool and useful gadgets inspired by the military.
1.Prism 200c Backpack
Want to feel a little geeky? Doing something like 3D scanning any building will definitely kick start that feeling. All you have to do is to place the prism 200c backpack along side the wall of the room, and via Bluetooth it connects to your smartphone and it gives you a stunning 3D image of the other side of the wall. Good thing is the backpack is designed to look like an ordinary backpack, but don’t deceived, the prism 200c is not your average backpack. This gadget is inspired by Military spec 3D scanning hardwares and is an epitome of utility when it comes Covert 3D scanning. So if you have an ex whose room you want to scan (which is not advisable if you want to keep your teeth) then the prism 200c has got you covered.

The number of soldiers whose life have been protected from dangerous flying bullets on battlefields is quite honestly very very substantial.
