The Defender: A Smart Self-Defence Wand To Get You Out Of Trouble

The Defender: A Smart Self-Defence Wand To Get You Out Of Trouble


The Defender is based on a pretty simple concept: it’s a smart gadget to keep you safe when things go South at night.

It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, and features law-enforcement-grade pepper spray so you can injure a potential assailant. When you click the button to deploy the stinging spray, the Defender snaps a photo of the assailant and sends it straight to a 24/7 monitoring service who quickly deploy law enforcement to your location.

The Defender costs anywhere between $US159 for early adopters of the crowdfunding effort, or $US179 retail. [Defender via TechCrunch]
