Posted by Starr Keshet

So you've watched Romero's Day of the Dead, read World War Z twice and are waiting for the third season of The Walking Dead. Clearly, you are prepared for the zombie apocalypse. Or are you?



When it comes to ravenous zombies, we all know you can't be too prepared.  So if you have an extra $24,000 to shell out on a preparedness kit, Optics Planet's Z.E.R.O. just might be what are you looking for.


Short for Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations, the kit claims to offer everything you need to survive the advent of the undead hordes, like basic first aid equipment, batteries and a solar panel.



Z.E.R.O. also offers a cache of scientific equipment for amateur researchers hoping to cure walkers and inoculate survivors, including syringes, beakers and a microscope. 



What about weapons?

 Well, you won't be disappointed. Yes, Z.E.R.O. is equipped with a very respectable zombie killing arsenal, boasting a custom holographic sight and biohazard reticle, a specially designed  combat knife, tactical gloves with ridged knuckles and an OPMOD Battle Mug.

"We have a lot of stuff already that are related to zombies, and we thought it would be fun to put together a collection of all that stuff," Optics Planet rep Brian Weiss told CBS Atlanta.


"We wanted to raise awareness of what could people need in a survival situation, like with the weather we've been having lately... We want to get people thinking about what they could use."
