Taser International is about to roll out its new, wireless weapon in Chicago on Monday. It's a shocking projectile, fired from a 12-gauge shotgun, called the XREP....the projectile weights just 14 grams (half an ounce), is less than .1 cubic inches and has a range of at least thirty meters. Its effects are similar to the latest Taser, the X26 – it will bring down anyone instantly, however tough, fanatical or drugged-up. It features "groundbreaking flight stabilization and microprocessor-controlled intelligent electrode selection technologies." And it was developed for military use with funding from the Office of Naval Research, with the largest contract in the company's history"
Thor Shield (TS) is a protective fabric lining that provides protection from non-lethal energy weapons such as TASER(TM)*, Stun Guns and animal control devices such as cattle prods. The product has been tested with stun products up to 900,000 volts.

While I can find about 2 things this could be used for in a good way, I imagine it iwll be used to taser old people, pregnant women and children as the old one was used for.
I reccommend that if anyone ever watches a police officer taser a child or pregnant woman or old person, YOU BEAT THAT COP TO THE GROUND, handcuff him with his own cuffs, call the Sherriff and file charges against the cop for assault.

Electric bullets to zap people 30 yards+ away - there are going to be plenty of takers for this one...
It won't take much of a technological leap to produce an electroshock sniper round which will kill instantly if it hits anywhere on the body at any range.

Originally posted by DeusExFirstly, despite your fears and imaginations, it is clearly written that this projectile is fired from a 12 gauge shotgun. Very loud, no batteries.

Alas, you are quite incorrect. It is indeed fired from a 12ga, but unless there's little fairies turning a generator inside the payload, a simple scan of the OP's post would reveal to you that you'll be needing something to run the "microprocessor-controlled intelligent electrode selection technologies", not to mention that the key word "electrode" implies something you've obviously overlooked.
You're trying to teach your granny to suck eggs on this sort of design, Deus.

I may not be an engineer, but I have the impression that this electrode business is the object wot discharges electricity into the bad guy. This electricity comes from the payload, not some weird-ass attachment to your pump-action.
On a technical basis, probably. But I have an understanding of firearms, and there ain't no attachments to your shotgun on this one. No CO2 canisters to make it super quiet, no batteries to chunk into your gun.
