I like the idea: a jacket that is wired to shock anyone who grabs it with electricity whilst keeping the wearer safe from harm, but isn’t it — practically speaking — kind of silly?
I mean, we have other deterrents that are just as effective, such as pepper spray, kung fu, and bodyguards. Do we need this kind of active clothing? What if you’re in a crowded elevator and it just goes off? And good luck getting it through a metal detector, pal.
Still, for some people this might give them some sense of security if they’re in remote places or are expecting an attack. I guess there’s nothing wrong with making a buck off the paranoid.
