Probably some good high-powered electrolytic condensers stitched in a metal-impregnated material - you know like that conductive rubber used for ESD grounding straps? Of course you'd need an insulating liner so you don't shock the wearer...

I'd love to get me one. And then I'll go take a walk down a nasty area in Detroit or Washington D.C. (navy yard area) - places that are worse than parts of New York City. the dark....with a couple hundred EURO in cash stashed in my inside jacket pocket....make my day scumbag!

Now if it were also made of kevlar that would be even better!!!!

What is this Justice Bureau? I wonder if the website means the Department of Justice? Hmmm....

These "hot" items have become ubiquitous. (Rhymes with "ridiculous.")

A person can let their dog run in the yard without a fence --or maybe just use an electrified fence .

They can walk around with an electrified cell phone decoy and carry an electrified brief case on their way to that boring meeting.

Just for fun, once they get into the office, they can wake everybody up when shaking hands.

So now there's finally clothing that UL can label. They'll eat that with a spoon!

Wonder if a GFI would be required? It's an outdoor power source, after all.
