Tazer Gloves Made from Altoids Tins: For That Curiously Strong Punch

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 23, 2011

I never thought I would live in a time where real life Superheros actually roam our streets, fighting crime. Well, they do and I do. And it’s nice to see that people are creating some useful gadgets for them to use while fighting crime.

The folks over at Techno-Holics have come up with these homemade Tazer Gloves, which admittedly don’t look like much, but they pack a punch. Criminals would be sadly mistaken to think that you were just packing Altoids, but would soon find out that these Altoids tins house a neat DIY tazer.

If you want to try your hand at this project yourself, you will need basic electronics know-how, along with some discarded disposable cameras, AA batteries, 2 Altoids tins, some dollar store dog collars, rubberized fishing gloves, 2 single pole single throw momentary switches, solder and wire. Now check out that video. There is nothing quite so beautiful as being able to touch your fingers together and create huge sparks.
