BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Watch out! this isn't your everyday iphone case. This one might get you!
A Baton Rouge-based duo is making and marketing a new type of iphone case that doubles as a line of defense - a stun gun. The Yellow Jacket iPhone case is still in the prototype phase, but should soon be available to buy.
The case's creator says the idea came to him after a man broke in to his home, stealing thousands of dollars in valuables.
“I started piecing together what I could of done differently. What I could of done to protect this from happening to me,” Seth Froom, creator of Yellow Jacket, said. “The solution I came up with was in that moment of exchange. When I had to hand him my phone - that was really the only opportune moment I had to turn the circumstances around.”
The Yellow Jacket phone case is only available for pre-orders right now. The Army reservist says he's been working on developing this taser case for about ten months.
