Shocking Tanks Let You Feel the Agony of Defeat

Do you want to teach your kids to become competitive? Then get a set of these radio-controlled shocking tanks, and in no time at all they will appreciate the value of winning. Instead of bullets or shells, the tanks fire infrared beams; whenever a tank is “hit” by the other tank, the person controlling it will receive a mild shock via the controller.


Here’s a nice video of a loving family repeatedly shocking their elder:

You can order the shocking tanks at Amazon for $50 (USD). The shocking comes at a price though: you’ll need a total of 12 batteries – 6 AAA and 6 AA – to operate the tanks, so you better have a bunch of rechargeable batteries ready if you want the fun to last. And here’s another tip: switch the controllers so your opponent would get shocked whenever they hit your tank. That’ll teach ’em!
