Electric Monday

To keep the "current" thread going for today, I figured I would turn you on to the shock jacket. :)  This would be kind of cool.

anti molest jacketBasically reinventing the No Contact Jacket that came out a couple of years ago, some students at the National Institute of Fashion Technology in India have developed a jacket that uses metal embroidery in order to conduct 100 volts of shock to molesters.  A button on the waistband allows wearers to trigger the shock, and insulation protects you from shocking yourself.  It’s not available yet, but if the model version is any indication, it won’t be taking off here any time soon, because, after all, looks trump function any day.  Unless you’re talking about Ugg boots, but that’s another story.
