This gun looks like a cell phone, something James Bond would own

Is it a gun, is it a cell phone? It’s the former, but it can be folded up to look like a cell phone. It reminds me a lot of the gadgets that I saw during my visit to the Spy: The Secret World of Espionage exhibit in New York City a few years ago.

The gun, officially dubbed the “Ideal Conceal” was developed by a company under the same name. When it’s collapsed, the trigger is hidden and it looks relatively similar to standard smartphone, though one that might have two huge 3.5mm headphone jacks – the dead giveaway that this isn’t actually a phone at all. There’s even a small area on the side that was added to look like a camera.

This isn’t a spy tool, it turns out, but a real pistol that might be sold later this year – that is, if The Department of Homeland Security, which is currently looking into the device, gives the OK.
