The Yellow Jacket is an iPhone 650K volt stun gun case that promises to ‘halt an aggressive adult male’ in his tracks while costing you $139.99.
The case was invented by Seth Froom who was robbed at gunpoint in his home in 2011 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Yellow Jacket CEO and co-founder Sean Simone states the voltage is at the “lower end” of the scale and “isn’t going to throw a grown man across the room or severely injure someone.” It will “cause pain and create a diversion”.
The Yellow Jacket connects to the 30-pin Dock Connector on the bottom of the iPhone 4/4S, and provides extra 20 hours of battery life to the phone and helps to power the stun gun included in the case
The Yellow Jacket is only available for the iPhone 4/4S for now but the team plans to bring the case to the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 sometime in the first quarter of 2013.
One thing is for sure. It will not be able to be shipped to New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Rhode Island, Wisconsin or Washington, D.C. because of local laws.
What will they think of next?
