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 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.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube.
