There’s a new Taser in town! Taser International’s 50,000 volt projectile, the Taser Grenade, can incapacitate those who need to be incapacitated at distances of up to 900 feet.
The Daily’s Justin Rocket Silverman (Rocket!) has the distinction of being the first civilian to be zapped by the new weapon, an experience he takes quite stoically, though the company wouldn’t actually fire the thing at him and just shocked him with a box of Taser Grenade guts instead. Still! This looks painful! The military is currently conducting tests with the projectile and police departments could be soon to follow, so you can probably expect the long distance tasing YouTubes to start rolling in very soon indeed.
