MUST SEE: The Ultimate Pepper Spray!

 

 

Using pepper spray to discourage an attacker is good. Using pepper spray that also takes a picture of the attacker and calls the police for you is great. A device called The Defender hit its goal of $100,000 on Kickstarter in just 24 hour hours and already has over 2,000 units on pre-order.

Pepper spray has been around forever, but what really takes this safety gadget to the next level is the Bluetooth element. It photographs the assailant, sends the picture to a 24-hour monitoring system, sends your GPS coordinates to the police and has a medical needs button if you've been injured. Though we'd rather live in a world where this stuff wasn't necessary, we're happy to know about innovative products out that can help.
