Death Stranding Fan Recreates Real-Life ‘Baby Jar’ to Protect Infant from Coronavirus

Father and Death Stranding fan Cao Junjie, recreates Sam Porter Bridges suit and real-life baby jar to protect his child from the Coronavirus while outside.

There are not many things in life that you wouldn’t do to protect your loved ones and in this current climate, people around the world are willing to go to extreme measures to keep their families safe due to the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus. One protective Chinese father decided to go that extra mile and recreate the ‘baby jar’ from Death Standing in order to shield his precious baby from the virus’s exposure.

Cao Junjie, 30 and from Shanghai, crafted the baby pod using a cat carrier that’s completely sealable with an air-quality monitor that displays how much carbon dioxide is inside so that his baby is safe and secure at all times. Tired of constantly worrying about his infant when traveling outside, Cao stabilized the pod with a “breathing machine” that filters the air outside and it even comes with a glove that allows Cao and his wife to feed, touch and soothe their baby without having to directly come in contact.

To accompany the baby jar, Cao made himself a Sam Porter Bridges suit to finish off the look which he reportedly will attempt to patent so that other parents can also find a creative way to navigate the coronavirus in the outside world. Cao declares he likes sci-fi movies and games, particularly Death Stranding, so after admiring Sam in the game, he wanted to create the structure of the safety cabin of the baby jar and suit.

“Because of the epidemic, I spent a month making this baby safety pod for my kid … It can provide a safe and comfortable environment for the baby,” said Cao. Initially, Cao’s wife, Fang Lulu, wasn’t sold on the idea to place her little baby in a small pod, but after a while, she grew to like the idea. “I think the baby pod he made is pretty safe. We have tried it several times, so I feel relieved,” replied Fang. As strange as this concept may be, it actually looks pretty cool as well as providing safety for your family and I think right now, nothing is more important than that. Maybe we will see more of these self-made Sam Porter suits and baby jar’s wandering around the streets?

Kojima Productions’ latest Death Stranding patch version 1.12 finally brought forward the long-awaited photo mode where gamers can change angles, colors, frames, expressions and more. Fans eager to share their creative photography skills, took to Twitter to showcase what shots they took while wandering the valleys of Death Stranding
