This Is Just Asking For Trouble: iPhone Case Shoots Pepper Spray

0 comments

We thought we had seen it all in iPhone gadgetry. Remember the chic handbag that doubles as an iPhone charger? What about the bra that has a secret iPhone compartment? But, wait — this might top any newfangled gadgetry. Say hello to Spraytect, an iPhone case-meets-pepper spray canister.

This case will protect your iPhone...and protect you. Spraytect is a standard wraparound case with a slot on the back, in which a small can of pepper spray is meant to securely fit. Remove a safety pin, rotate a lever, aim at a ne'er-do-well, and a mist of pepper spray will be blasted into the attacker’s eyes.

“With a little practice, aiming and firing will become second nature,” says Stacey Kole, former Miss Arizona, in the promotional video. An added bonus is that the case also acts as a kickstand, allowing users to watch movies hands-free.

So, whether this a great innovation in personal protection technology or just another gimmick, we'd like to offer some advice: try not give one of your friends a face full of pepper spray while snapping their photo. Say "freeze," not "cheese," baddies. (Guardian)
