Turn Your iPhone Case Into A Stun Gun

This looks good but I don’t think for one minute that it would be legal in the UK but in the US it’s a different story. This is an Indiegogo project that has now reached its minimum goal so production will begin once the campagin has completed. So far, it has raised $54,319 of a $100,000 goal. The case contains a 650K volt stun gun capable of taking down an attacker. Yellow Jacket also has it’s own external battery, capable of giving the smartphone up to 20 ADDITIONAL HOURS of standby BATTERY LIFE.

While creating this product, the developers realized that this would be a device people would place next to their face. Because of this, CREATING A SAFE PRODUCT WAS THEIR NUMBER ONE FOCUS OF OUR DESIGN TEAM. Yellow Jacket features a safety switch and a rotating electrode cap, both intended to prevent accidental discharge. In less than a second, a user can disable these safety mechanisms by moving the switch forward, rotating the cap downward and then be ready to press the activation button to fire the electrodes and be prepared to confront an assailant. The smartphone is securely snapped into Yellow Jacket’s inside housing assembly, and the rubber sleeve then wraps around the device, giving Yellow Jacket a smoother look, feel and added protection to your smartphone.
