It looks like we’ve found former UC Davis Campus Police Lieutenant John Pike‘s new favorite iPhone case.
As smartphones become even more ubiquitous in our society, it’s becoming more likely that you’ll be walking down the street with your mobile device in your hand, rather than your keys. With this in mind, one company has decided to move personal protection from your keyring to your iPhone.
Pepper spray. Yes, that satanic blast of habanero pepper that will set anyone’s mucus membranes on fire is now available on your Apple device. Spraytect has developed the Pepper Spray Phone Case so you can fend off your assaulter without dropping that important call or botching a tweet.
The Spraytect case comes in black, white, turquoise, and pink, and will fit the iPhone 4 and 4S (more phones currently being worked on, according to the company). It employs a 3-step firing process which they say is “simple to use even in the most stressful situations,” but also includes safety mechanisms to avoid accidental deployment.
This spicy mobile protection will run you $39.95. Your order will include one real canister and test cartridges, so you can practice not shooting yourself in the face with it.
If pepper spray isn’t really your thing, you could always go the stun gun route.[via Gizmag]
