Intro: DIY taser in flashlight
Don't build this if you are a dummy and want to go around shocking people. You will be charged with assault at the very least. Don't try it on anyone with a pacemakeror possible heart condition.I built this taser for my diy video podcast. (check out my shirt!) I thought I would make an instructable to enter in the flashlight contest. The design I used gives a jolt of1200 volts which I promise you can really feel! In the video we have an exclusive interview with Geoff Desmoulin from Spike TV's show "Deadliest Warrior" where hetalks about the science and effects of tasing people.Please check out my otherinstructables
