America: Where Our Weapons Come in Fashion Colors
It’s little! It’s pink! It fits in your handbag! It's the new designer Taser!
Could we take semi-lethal electroshock any less seriously? It looks like you could use it to shave your legs or curl your eyelashes.
I know people have saved their own lives by using a Taser. But mass-marketing them in pastel pink is just not the way to go.
I hope something a little better-thought-out comes out of CES this week.
Edited to add: this is NOT what I was hoping for, Peter.
