THE MAKER of zapping gear used by plod world wide when they can no longer be bothered talking to people, Taser has decided to soften its image.
One of the more bizarre products on offer at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was a Taser that had its own MP3 player attached.
This is because it is vital that you are able to listen to your favourite music as you are wrestling with a six foot barbarian who is after your purse. Well, Taser has done the marketing it must have seen the figures and must have thought it was worthwhile.
Its Music Player Holster’s mp3 player can hold up to 1GB of music which is more than enough for hand to hand combat lasting a few days. The C2 stun gun can deliver 50,000 volts into your target up to 15 feet way. So you can shock and sing to your, and hopefully the target’s, heart’s content.
The Taser has a range of stylish patterns including a fairly tasteless leopard skin print which should shock the attacker without having to fire the thing.
We think this is a move in the right direction. If Apple claims it is attempting to make its products more user friendly, we like to see MP3 players made less friendly. It means that if that idiot next to you on the train has his Coldplay up too loud you can show him whose MP3 player packs the most punch.
