Make Taser-proof Clothing with Carbon Fiber Tape: Defense Against Self-defense

Aside from being very strong and rigid, carbon fiber is also a very good conductor of electricity. Hack A Day Projects member Shenzhen took advantage of the wonder material’s property to make an electroshock-proof coat.

Shenzhen simply stuck strips of carbon fiber tape under the lining of his coat using iron-on hem tape.

Because carbon fiber is more conductive than human skin, the current from the taser will flow through the tape.

Because it’s just a matter of sticking carbon fiber strips, you can actually do this to practically any piece of clothing. Shenzhen also used carbon fiber tape to make heated clothing, although that mod is a bit trickier and requires a power source to work.
