From Hi-Tech Tasers to Pepper Spray Phones

 - Jul 19, 2013
The main function of self-defense gadgets is to guard one's safety, but these creations also focus on form. While equipping one with safety measures, these products also pay attention to design and style.

A lot of tasers and pepper sprays are becoming multi-functional. With the prevalence of smartphones, some brands are even producing taser-incorporated phone cases. This type of design makes weaponry conveniently portable and discrete.

A more stationary self-defense item is the Burglar Blaster set. It detects thieves from within 2,000 square feet of its range and releases pepper spray when alarmed. The Burglar Blaster's sleek design mounts onto your wall, resembling a security system.

While many self-defense creations are blatantly obvious, other are disguised. For instance, Austrian artist Toni Spyra makes weapons out of everyday objects like wooden clothes hangers or perfume bottles.
