High-Tech Tools Could Weaponize Your Iphone
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- An Iphone can do pretty much anything.
Well you can add one more feature to the multi-tasking smart phone , self-defense. Dan Simon reports on a new product that turns your phone into a weapon.
Gadget weaponry is a staple of James Bond.
But this is real: an Iphone with a big secret, a stun gun.
It's called the yellow jacket. Snap on the case, and you've got a serious weapon capable of delivering 650 thousand volts of electricity.
"You just lift this flap, expose these little electrodes, turn the unit on and press the button."
"It protects your phone, extends your battery life, and most importantly it protects you."
But that's not all. This case shoots pepper spray. It's from a company called Spraytecht. The inventor says he came up with the idea for his college bound daughter.
What makes these things so unique is they're so perfectly concealed. They look just like any number of phone cases. Since people carry their phones all the time, the weapons are always with you and ready.
But self- defense experts stress the need for training, "If you are formally trained, if you are taught the mindset to defend yourself correctly. If you go through repetitious training, it would probably be effectiveif."
Also it's important to note that stun guns aren't legal everywhere. But as this promotional video claims, many would-be victims now have a new high tech tool to defend themselves.
