Police first began using Tasers as a way to take down suspected criminals without resorting to guns. But as controvery mountedover the years as to whether Tasers might actually be deadly, police and advocates looked for an alternative.
It looks like they might have found it, in the so-called “Dazer Laser,” developed by Mercerville, N.J.-based Laser Energetics.
It’s no secret that Tasers hurt. A lot. But their greatest advantage has always been that they’re not lethal. The Dazer Laser doesn’t physically harm you, but it does temporarily impair vision, and may also cause nausea.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
