Taser X12 Stun Gun Freezes People From 88 Feet Away

There's a new stun gun called the X12. And it's pretty much a freeze ray without the ice.

The X12 fires a jolt through the air (wirelessly) through nonlethal bullets that can cut through clothing to paralyze a perpetrator within an effective range of 88 feet. Apparently this paralysis occurs without pain (though I wonder if that's a relative idea), meaning that freeze tag just got a whole lot more fun, though ever so slightly less fair.

Authorities will receive their first shipments of the X12 in June. The endless pranks will begin sometime thereafter. [Taser via Yahoo via The Raw Feed]
