Georgia gets tased at #CESlive by a Yellowjacket iPhone case

Yellowjacket makes very special cases for the iPhone - they're for self-defense. They incorporate a non-lethal stun gun right in the cases. It's not like the ones the cops use - this won't make you fall to the ground. But Yellowjacket says that it's enough to scare someone off.

The case houses a rechargeable battery that doubles the battery life of your iPhone. A battery switch turns the case off to prevent accidental discharge, and a safety switch underneath the activation button is another measure to keep the Yellowjacket from going off when you don't expect it.

Georgia wanted to experience it first-hand - watch the video to see the results!

I give you props for doing that Georgia. I've been OC sprayed for LE purposes and it sucks! I work with electronics as a job and have been shocked and I can't imagine doing that lol.

Life gets weirder and more enjoyable every day. An iPhone case with a damn taser? Good on you for trying it out.

jlb21 says:

The sound of the taser is like a juicy fart. I'm sorry. It just does.

Winston Loh says:

Wow, you are brave Georgia...Bravo.

axllebeer says:

The question is will she have to go into therapy after a tazing :)

(since that's kind of her area in the 1st place...)

ame says:

I cannot believe they wouldn't do it! Whoever was filming should've done it so she didn't have to tase herself!

That's very brave of you Georgia to take one for the team.
For the product, I just hope whoever buys one doesn't use it to do something reckless.
