Ultimate Protection from Proporta

Fugu is the Japanese word for puffer-fish, which is both a great delicacy and a deadly poison. The little fella looks innocuous enough, until you make him angry, and makes delicious eating if you can get past the aggressive teeth, puffed up fins, and, of course, the deadly poisonous inner organs.


Proporta have taken a leaf out of the book of this clever puffer-fish, and are proud to bring you the Fugu Case (Anti-Theft – Mobile). This protective case offers the usual high standard of Proporta protection, keeping your mobile safe from everday knocks and scratching, but with an all new defense system designed to guard against theft. Once activated by its owner, the Fugu Case is armed with a code dependent incendiary device that is triggered by any unauthorised body that attempts to steal it. The ensuing explosion inflates the case to 20 times its normal size, thus deterring the thief and alerting the owner to the attempted robbery. Never again do you need to worry about light-fingered phone thieves, and if you fancy some puffer-fish protection, we’ve also got a range of exclusive discounts available when you buy this product.
