Are you a problem-solving field agent who refuses to use a gun to defend yourself? Or are you an Equalist looking to cover your subpar chi blocking skills? Then you’re as real as my readers. Badum-tish! You’ll also appreciate this stun baton made from off-the-shelf electronics and some recycled bits and pieces.

The baton is a pet project of UltraKeet member PodeCoet. It works by stepping up the voltage of a 4v battery to 10,000 volts through several stages, starting from two booster converter circuits, then to an inverter and finally to a voltage multiplier. Watch the result in the video below:

Head to UltraKeet for the full instructions. If you haven’t guessed by now this involves next level hackjutsu and is extremely dangerous. Also PodeCoet’s walkthrough is funny but it’s also made with colorful language, so best leave the young ones off of this one. Here’s an excerpt:

You need only get close to, and not phsyically touch these components to get a jolt, which may lead to Ventricular Fibrillation.

You can die (or sh*t your pants, sometimes both) while building this device. We are not liable for any losses or injuries, and cannot answer any support queries regarding this build.

Edit: Yes, you can still die, even if you know how to program an Arduino.
