from danger room: It's taken me a couple decades to warm up to the idea of animal print shoes, so fashion-forward nonlethal weapons are still a bit of a stretch for me. Not for TASER International, however. The company today is unveiling a leopard print TASER(r) C2 personal protection and its TASER Music Player, which combines a TASER holster and and am MP3 player.
Naturally, the new weapons are being showcased in Las Vegas. "The 1GB TASER MPH allows for both personal protection and personal music for people on the go," the company says. "Red-hot red" and "fashion pink" are two more new colors the company plans to reveal.
And, despite what appears like snowballing reports of TASER abuse, TASER officials remain incredibly bullish on TASER's potential as a fashion accessory. "These new product are a result of listening to our customers. Personal protection can be both fashionable and functionable," said Rick Smith, CEO and founder of TASER International, in a press release issued by the company. "The TASER C2 leopard print design provides a personal protection option for women who want fashion with a bite."
