The Trouble With Tasers

3 comments January 7th, 2008at 06:59pm Posted by Eli

Thank God, someone has finally recognized and corrected the taser’s fatal flaw:

A handy new holster from Taser International Inc. holds not only your stun gun but a music player too.

Taser’s latest foray into consumer products was introduced Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The holster costs $72.99 on the company’s Web site and includes a 1-gigabyte MP3 player.

The company, which also sells its electronic weapons to law enforcement agencies and the military, has been stepping up its consumer product offerings with Tasers in new colors like ”red-hot” and ”fashion pink.”

The latest Taser — in a leopard print and costing $379.99 — ”provides a personal protection option for women who want fashion with a bite,” said Chief Executive Rick Smith.

Yes, that’s right: The taser needed to be more stylish and fun. Just think of the compliments and admiring looks your sexy new leopard print taser will garner in between agonized screams! And if you get tired of the screams, well you can just tune them right out with that nifty MP3-playing holster! Awesome!

I predict that next year they will partner up with a cellphone company to develop the Motorola TAZR – zap ’em and then call the cops with the same convenient device!

    You’ll be able to take pictures…or better yet, shoot video!

    Couldn’t they just provide noise-cancelling headphones?

    What if you get your earbuds and the taser prongs mixed up and you taser your ears?

    And wouldn’t the taser discharging create a horrible static on the MP3 player?
