I read this news article about a man in Australia who had such a charge of static electricity he was melting the carpet as he walked


Firefighters measureed the static charge in his clothes at 40,000 volts.


My question is could a special uniform and gloves be designed for soldiers that could be charged up and then basically used as a weapon in hand to hand combat?

Potentially, I suppose it could be. But it seems to me that a Taser or something similar would be more effective. In this case, all he did was set things on fire, whereas a Taser can actually knock someone to the ground.

Something like the ADS stunstrike works along not-dissimilar lines -

and I also recall a 20,000-volt vest being developed in Japan.
