X12 Stun Gun Zaps from 88 Feet

March 26, 2009

Stunning people is totally fun, but it sucks because if you’re too close they can grab you and you get shocked.  Then an outline of your skeleton flashes black and white, Wile E. Coyote-style. Yikes. Well, that’s not a problem anymore.

The X12 shotgun-style stun gun launched in Singapore today and it allows security personnel (or me) to shoot targets (or friends) from a “maximum effective distance” of 27 meters. 

Here’s another fun fact: it doesn’t shock like normal Tasers, bro.  It sends electrical impulses into the target that actually paralyze them instead of just immobilizing them by causing a ton of pain.  Technology is pretty rad.
