    Link: The Tazer Jacket - Thus, If you grab someone wearing this jacket, a high-powered electric shock is sent through your body.

    That is actually not a half bad idea, knowing me I would end up shocking myself, but at least it keeps those people that don`t understand the concept of a "personal bubble" away from you.

    je_scream eh? you don`t have to be smart to come up with that jacket. most things in life you don`t have to be smart. you have to be creative, there`s a huge difference.

    i feel like this will be used by cops now ... :-(

    I dot understand why they didn`t make it a mesh suit would have made the whole jacket electric and bee much safer for the wearer, Cos tares and stuff wont matter.

    Nice idea but knowing me if I had one, one of my friends would just randomly tap my shoulder and Id jump, clench my fists, and fry them.

    1) Buy one.
    2) Give all your friends a hug.
    3) Be lonely but have this never ending grin on your face.

    1) modify it so it releases a amount of electricity that would kill u no matter what
    2)modify it so that the electricity is always on
    3)go on the most crowded train and watch the result

    I see a few issues.

    1. Most people will see the electricity and hear it.
    2. As some other pointed out, a friend might get hurt if they sneak up on you.
    3. Should it really be that powerful?
    4. What DOES happen if it gets wet? If any water got inside would the electricity run up (or down) and into the jacket?
    5. Are you going to wear this all the time or do you know when you will be attacked?

    I`d like to wear it to work and electrocute all the people who grab me all the time.

    Along with a hazmat suit because of all the filthy lowlives there who cough dozens of times a day on whoever is unlucky enough to be in range.

    I had someone coughing in my hair today while I was working (they were sitting on a chair, I was squatting on the floor). Then they complimented me on my hair! I don`t think they were deliberately taking the piss.

    Sometimes, it`s hard working with the public.
