    Russian engineers have come up with a unique device to safeguard the country’s top officials from eavesdropping and prevent explosive devices from going off, RIA Novosti reported citing the press service of the thingamajig’s maker – the United Instrument Corporation.

    According to the developers, the attaché-case-sized device can be used to ensure the safety of top officials and prevent terrorist attacks in crowded places.

    The “case” blocks radio signals that could set off remote-controlled bombs, including during mine-defusing operations.

    The device is also an ideal means of preventing unauthorized access to confidential information.

    “During closed-door meetings the “case” blocks  eavesdropping devices effectively preventing any unwanted leaks,” the UIC’s press service said in a statement.

    The UIC made no mention about the actual cost of the “magic suitcase.”
