DIY Taser Gloves Inspired by Fallout

The Techno-Holics (Jeffie and Evil Pat) have created something that we all wish that we had at one point or another – Taser Gloves.  By using capacitors from discarded disposable cameras, AA batteries, rubber gloves, a switch, and some wire and solder you can make these too.  A video of these in action can be found here.  It’s yet to be seen if there have the power to do anything other than make someone really mad, as a spark and a continuing charge are not the same, but I’m sure that it wouldn’t feel pleasant.  The makers are already working on version 2.0 of the gloves that don’t need a button held down to charge the capacitors and possibly something better than Altoids tins to hold the electronics. 

This seems to be the first time that the idea of a “Zap Glove” from Fallout is being tried out in real life.  In Fallout the glove includes a pressure plate on the knuckles that, when struck, releases the zap of the glove.  The Techno-Holics glove uses electrodes mounted on the middle finger and the thumb that release a charge when a circuit is formed but the resemblance is uncanny.  There’s no plans to sell these at this time and it could be quite a while before they become legal so you will have to get out your electronics books (or go to the library) and make a pair of your own if you want some. 

Disclaimer:  This is probably illegal and definitely dangerous so don't mess with this stuff.  OK?

  2. By and large Fallout 3 did a great deal directly as a first individual shooter, and at the time it was nearly at its top in a bigger number of ways than one. The designs were dazzling, the Wasteland a joy to investigate, and the adversaries fun and connecting with to battle. Mods

  3. Great articles and great layout. Your blog post deserves all of the positive feedback it’s been getting. TPE gloves
