This combined Bluetooth attack alarm, flashlight and pepper spray is called the Peacekeeper. LOL.
The Peacekeeper keeps the peace by letting its user deliver a does of “military-grade” pepper spray into the face of another human being. Here’s what that means, according to a paper from the European Parliament Scientific and Technological Options Assessment (STOA).
The effects of pepper spray are far more severe, including temporary blindness which lasts from 15–30 minutes, a burning sensation of the skin which lasts from 45 to 60 minutes, upper body spasms which force a person to bend forward and uncontrollable coughing making it difficult to breathe or speak for between 3 to 15 minutes.
Of course, you can’t be blinding and burning people all the time, which is why there’s a flashlight to play with the rest of the time.
The light is amazing, but the stopping power is simply unbelievable!

Why am I writing about this? Because the “Peacekeeper” also sends a Bluetooth signal to your iPhone, and from there – presumably – and alert to somewhere else. I say “presumably,” because the only information on the Indiegogo page is this: “We are working together with a brilliant app development team to create a very sophisticated app that goes far beyond the basic functionality.”
But hey, it’s non-lethal right? $80.
