On the practical side, this stuff will be rolling out by the end of the year to instantly upgrade cops' riot shields into serious business, no taser wand-waving necessary, like an instant force field. On the other hand, consumerized taser tape could become the best thing since sliced electric bread: Keep asshole roommates out of your beer fridge!
