Stun-gun cell phone: Who needs 911?

900,000 volts from a 4-inch fake handset.

Not all of us are NRA card-carrying members at Crave, but we do appreciate the art of self-defense--especially at a distance. Yet we fully acknowledge the impracticalities of toting around certain Tasers and other non-lethal weapons, the sight of which could make some people feel a tad uncomfortable especially on the subway or other confined public spaces.

One solution comes from a site called SecuritySafetySpy.com--whose slogan is "Because it's a jungle out there"--in the form of a stun gun that looks like a harmless mobile phone. The "Immobilizer" could be as menacing as its name indicates, delivering a 900,000-volt jolt from a 4-inch ersatz handset that even has a fake camera to lull potential perps into complacency.

A particularly practical feature is its 12-LED flashlight, according to Gizmodo, so you can watch your thwarted attacker writhing in pain even in the most darkened alleys.
