I was skeptical of this as a concept, but I saw a live demonstration at a Product Hunt event earlier this week and I was convinced of its merit. I think at first I considered it to be a defensive weapon in the case someone attacks you...I'm not convinced that's reasonable, but to scare someone off? This this is scarier than the clown from It when it gets charged and makes that lightening-crackle sound... Wild.

@rrhoover I should add btw that this guy discussed how he built this product start to finish and it was really fascinating. He explained how he sought out factories in China, what he learned from manufacturing, how simple things derailed them (a tag hook to hang it at a store was one thing), the safety/testing/disclaimer information and how they developed it, etc. It was one of the better talks I've seen on a product in a long time. Also, it helps that the guy said he had tazed himself many times to get sales :-)!

@uxandrew @rrhoover one of my colleagues used this on himself at CES a couple years back -- check it out! http://www.digitaltrends.com/dt-...

I agree I'm a bit skeptical about it working and honestly am wondering two main issues: 1. Is this even legal? At what point is this deemed a weapon? I know it's for protection but attached to a phone and labeled "case" or not, it'll get the job done haha 2. What are long term effects on the phone? I know it's in a case but I would imagine there's some type of effect.

@imcatnoone and how safe is it from a misfire in my pocket? I'd like to have kids someday.
Andrew ZusmanHunter@uxandrew · UX Designer
@imcatnoone @rrhoover From what the guy discussed: 1-- Legal in some places, less legal in other places. I think he said they sell mostly to California, Texas (obviously), and Florida, and that places like Chicago and NYC were more strict. 2-- Actually, it doubles as a battery charger. It's not charged as a weapon unless you really really really really want it to be. There are like three safety features that makes it nearly impossible to go off in your pocket. I would think that if you're going to use it once or twice life time for that purpose it's probably okay, but I wouldn't go around tazing shit all the time for no reason. NO chance it misfires in your pocket. Think about it like Pepper Spray not like some gadget you show off to your friends.
