Japan Weapon

As we all very well know by now, it is National Self-Defense Month. Now with self-defense you don't need to always use punches and kicks to protect yourself, sometimes a good protection weapon is all you need.

We have seen some amazing pieces of technology that have been used to protect yourself, from the stun gun to pepper spray, and even a loud whistle has been shown to really help. But many of those weapons are ones that you need to be rather close to your assailant for it to become truly effective.

Many times after you are attacked, even if you are able to to get away, so does the perpetrator. That becomes a huge problem because even though you may fine, the streets still aren't completely safe because that person slipped away.

But not anymore, we introduce you to two weapons that are designed to help you in these terrible situations and keep the assailant from being able to commit a crime again.

These products were created by the kind and creative folks from Japan. The first product looks like a large flashlight but it is actually a device that can shoot a net from 2-3 meters away, and completely debilitate that person. Obviously, it may seem a little large at first, but when it comes down to being safe, why not carry a large net cannon around.

The second product being featured here is one that looks more like a handgun, but it actually shoots two chemicals from two separate cartridges when fired. The first is a product fired that is one similar to what is found in pepper spray, the second is one that fires an ultraviolet liquid that can help authorities identify the criminal or the criminal's vehicle. Once again, I do love the idea of getting away but also having the possibility of that person being arrested.

So obviously these weapons aren't perfect, but it shows that we do live in a world that protection is still needed. Maybe a few years from now these products can be made a little smaller and slicker, and easier to add into our daily life. But in the meantime, I'll be carrying around my flashlight net-cannon, ready for anyone that tried to steal my Apple Watch.
