There are so many different iPhone cases with most blending together. The Yellow Jacket is a different breed that adds in three levels of protection. There’s the expected hard plastic shell, and battery back-up, but what makes Yellow Jacket truly different is the included stun gun. Now, your iPhone case can have a built-in taser to help protect you on dark streets. You simply activate the high voltage taser, and see the 650k volt electricity live at the end of the case.
There’s also safety built into the Yellow Jacket case, so that you don’t activate it accidentally. There’s an electrode cover that you need to flip off before using the charge, and then there’s an activation button to actually put the taser in action. The Yellow Jacket includes a safety switch as well. We got to see the Yellow Jacket in action, and while we didn’t take the charge, others said it felt like a sharp sting. It’s not exactly disarming like an actual stun gun, but it may be enough for certain situations. The Yellow Jacket is expected to launch in February for $149, and again provides a protective hard shell, battery back-up, and built-in taser. A shocking stand out at CES 2014.
