This Full-Size Inflatable Tank Is Perfect For Scaring Neighbors

It's good to have neighbors, but sometimes they can be a bother. Worse still are people who wander up to your door trying to sell you things you neither want nor need. The solution to your problems could be a full-size inflatable tank. Hey, the military uses them to fool the enemy so it should work for you, too. The practice has been around for years. The idea is to put a fake tank in a strategic location to fool the enemy and give real troops time to move to a more strategic spot. It might seem ridiculous, like something Wile E. Coyote would try, but it works so well that troops gain as much as an extra hour before the enemy figures out the ruse.

As far as technology has come, it seems a blow-up tank is still enough to trick people. They're not top secret, eyes only, military equipment either, so you can buy them for a couple of hundred dollars online. Versions with a heat signature run $3000 and the real thing will set you back $6 million so the cheap inflatable kind (see the video below) is as close as you'll come to owning a genuine tank.
