CES: The buzz on Taser MP3 player

January 9, 2008

I chickened out. I considered getting Tased in the name of reporting, then thought better after wincing at the crackle it makes when you hit the trigger.

My colleague Scott Hillis, who writes about Apple, even volunteered to do the tasing, while checking out the new MP3 playing abilities of its new holster. He wondered whether the music would pause, like the iPhone when a call comes in. (Answer: no, the 1GB player is just on the holster and is not connected to the Taser.)

Details on the new Taser C2: 0-15-foot range, 30 second cycle, integrated LED light, optional laser sight, comes in metallic pink, black pearl, titanium silver, electric blue (get it?), leopard, redhot red (get it?) and fashion pink.

Taser International VP of communications Stephen Tuttle (check out his tie) explains:
