Turn your iPhone into a stun gun with Yellow Jacket

Don’t worry, it comes in four chic colors.


iPhone covers come in all shapes and sizes these days. Some are blinged out, some are water proof, and some of them house 650,000 volts of electricity.


The Yellow Jacket is a special iPhone case that turns your favorite Apple product into a handy stun gun, perfect for warding off all kinds of evil-doers. Created by Seth Froom who had his own traumatic experience with being burgled, the device is supposedly harmless until activated, and comes with a safety switch and cover to avoid electrocuting your face when making a phone call.

The obvious downside of course is that it adds some serious weight and thickness to your sleek iPhone, but the obvious benefit of course is you can fry your assailant’s family jewels with the simple flip of a switch. You can check out a video of the project and pledge some funding here.
