iPhone Pepper Spray
iPhone cases come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but this one is definitely an original. A European company named Piexon has developed SmartGuard, an iPhone case that also serves as a pepper spray case. It’s designed to protect both the phone with a durable case, and the user with a can of pepper spray.
A small canister of pepper spray clips into the case along with your iPhone. In the event of an attack it can be quickly deployed. Play Angry Birds on the iPhone then fight off angry robbers with the pepper spray.
According to the manufacturer, it provides 6, 1/2 second bursts at a approximate range of 5 feet. The pepper spray is disposable and replacement units are available. The case retails for about $35.00 and replacement pepper spray canisters sell for around $20 bucks. I’m sure iPhone users will be disappointed that there isn’t an app to disperse the pepper spray, but I’m sure there are enterprising app designers working on one as we speak!
The jury is still out on this product. Not sure if it’s a great idea to have pepper spray that close to your face when answering a call. Of course we advocate people carrying some type of self defense weapon, but we’re unsure how iPhone users will feel about the added bulk. Also, the canister looks pretty small, I doubt if it’s even 2 ounces.
However, if it helps people to protect themselves I guess we’re all for it!
