Ideal Conceal, a U.S. company, has invented a gun that folds up to the approximate shape and size of a smartphone. The inventor says it is meant for people who want to carry a weapon without feeling awkward about it.
Speaking with NBC News, Kirk Kjellberg, the inventor, said he had the idea for Ideal Conceal after an incident in a restaurant. A young boy noticed the concealed weapon he was carrying, alerting his mother and drawing the attention of the entire restaurant.
Because Kjellberg didn’t like that people were aware of his decision to carry a loaded firearm to a dinner he decided there had to be a better way. Thus, Ideal Conceal was born.
