Aside from saving you from a heavy load of paper works, laptops can also serve as an unpredictable life-saving bullet shield. Because of this device carried in his backpack, Steve Frappier managed to survive a shooting rampage at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport unharmed. While ducking for safety, Frappier felt something hit his back and thought it was just luggage thrown because of commotion.

The gunman was identified as Esteban Santiago, a mentally-ill Iraq war veteran who killed five and injuring eight people at the shooting. The handgun he used to open fire was the only checked luggage he brought in his flight. (dailymail.co.uk)
