‘Peacekeeper’ Bluetooth Alarm And Flashlight Douses Humans With Pepper Spray


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!
– Officer Mike Stradley, SWAT

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.
