Think you can bully grandpa? Better look at that cane closely. The old geezer could be using the Zap Cane, a walking stick that doubles as a 1-million volt stun gun. Yikes.
Weaponized canes have been the subject of many comic book fantasies. They’ve been fitted with hidden knives, dart guns and all manner of offensive artillery. This million-volt stunner, however, sounds like the perfect protection for any city-prowlin’ old timer.
As a walking aid, the Zap Cane can support weights of up to 250 lbs., apart from being adjustable in height between 32 to 36 inches. Since the typical senior citizen cane user tends to have bad eyesight, too, it comes with a built-in LED flashlight to help you navigate your way around dark alleys and dimly-lit parks.
The real gem, of course, is the tasering capability, which should knock down any bad-mannered attacker upon contact. Even better, they won’t see it coming — you can act like you’re just going to poke them in the rib like any mild-mannered old dude and, the next thing they know, they’re waking up all shook and bewildered.
The Zap Cane comes with a built-in rechargeable battery and a carrying case. It’s available now for $90.
