Sleek and Shocking

The No-Contact Jacket (shown above) is a stylish way to keep the bad guys away. A mesh of electric armor lies just beneath the outer shell of the jacket. Whenever it's activated by the wearer, 80,000 volts of current deliver a painful shock. Anyone grasping the garment will instantly lose his balance and become disorientated. It won't kill an attacker--it'll just give him a little something to remember you by.

Apparently, these jackets have been around for a few years. Why don't I have one! (Though it might not be a good idea to wear one around New York--you're always bumping into people.)

Fun thing to wear to a school dance -- when someone asks you to dance, and you don't want to, BZZT!

That's be so fun.

How could anyone wear that without developing a serious twitch from constantly checking to make sure that your hands aren't anywhere near the activation button or whatever?? lol.
And how does the wearer not get killed? xD
Otherwise, though, awesome.

It even looks cool. I bet it costs a mint.

I'll wait and get one when they invent a jacket that lets you shoot lightning at people a few feet away. My annoying co-worker comes over, bzap! Go'way, I is workin'!
