Look at these bullets. They're rubbery, less lethal,"almost incapable of penetrating the body," and happen to resemble Koosh balls—a popular toy. Getting shot with these must be fun.

I'm kidding. I don't really think getting shot by anything would be fun, but it's really difficult to believe that "[t]his may be the most intelligent way to defend your family against home intruders." Especially when the "WARNING: Keep out of reach of children" is distracting me.

Either way, rubber projectiles like these have been used by law enforcement agencies for ages, but now they're available to consumers. I'm not entirely sure that's a good thing. [Wired]
