SINGAPORE: There is a new stun gun in the market, which has led to many police forces and security organisations worldwide expressing interest in it. ADVERTISEMENT A new X12 stun gun was launched at the Global Security Asia 2009 event on Thursday. It is the world’s first wireless stun gun and features a maximum effective range of 27 metres. Its manufacturers say being able to fire at such a range ensures the safety of any security personnel using it. The product will only be available in June and the Singapore Police Force has already expressed interest in it. The existing X26 Taser stun gun was launched in 2003. It can penetrate clothing and transmit electrical impulses, causing the body to be temporarily paralysed, unlike conventional stun guns which causes immobility by causing pain.
The X12 stun gun looks set to be my favorite weapon - after all, it is a freeze ray minus the ice. This is made possible by firing a jolt through the air, cutting through layers of clothing to paralyze your target as long as he/she remains within an 88 foot radius. This paralysis supposedly occurs without any pain, and we have no idea on just how long the target will remain frozen though. Expect to see the X12 hit the market sometime this June for a yet undisclosed price. Take note that the image here is meant for illustrative purposes only as it is an actual product from Taser.
