This has got to be the ultimate gadget. You can convert your innocuous-looking iPhone into a snarling defensive weapon. A new iPhone case also houses a 650,000-volt stun gun. That should be quite the defensive weapon! It looks about like any other iPhone case and shouldn't raise eyebrows wherever you carry it. Somehow, I have to believe this thing will be illegal in a number of states.
The Yellow Jacket iPhone stun gun case also provides another use: it is capable of giving your phone up to 20 hours of additional standby battery. Apparently, a stun gun uses very heavy duty batteries!
This is no joke.
Yellow Jacket has been designed as the world's first smartphone defense case. It is designed to protect both the user and the smartphone from harm. The case contains a 650K volt stun gun capable of taking down an attacker. The case is charged via the same cable as your iPhone. It comes in black, white, pink and limited edition gold and can be pre-ordered for a hundred bucks. Android models reportedly are “coming soon.”
I'd suggest being careful when you hold the phone up to your ear.
The iPhone stun gun case was designed by Seth Froom, a man who was attacked in his home. He had defensive weapons available that night but none were by his side when he needed them. After the incident, he realized that he always carries his iPhone on his belt but the weapons he previously purchased to "protect himself" were elsewhere in the home. The attacker entered the home so quickly that Seth was unable to retrieve any of his weapons. The obvious answer was to carry a stun gun on his belt at all times, even at home. However, few people are willing to do that.
Seth and his new business partner have created only a few stun gun cases so far. However, if they can obtain the funding, they plan to start manufacturing stun gun cases in quantity. To help them obtain funding, you can pre-order a stun gun today at a discount from the expected retail price of $125. The money is held by indiegogo.com, a well-known third-party escrow service. Indiegogo will hold the funds until enough money is obtained. If sufficient funds are not raised, the money you spent is returned to you. Details are available at http://www.indiegogo.com/learn/faqs.
