Taser Launcher

A multiple sided taser (like a ninja star) will be placed in a modified grenade launcher and will be shot out at a target (preferably pneumatic powered.) It will be stabilized by spinning horizontally. When the target is hit it will be immobilized by the shock. The electricity will start as soon as it is launched, and will stop when it's internal battery dies. It can be picked up and recharged, meaning the tasers are reuseable. The weapon is non-lethal and in case the battery dies before it hits the target it would still hurt it because it flies very fast. But it is still basically an immobilizer, just like a regular taser.

       I hate you. << product of bad mood and distasteful random(ism).

       It's a fun idea - although I think I'd rather throw them by hand, rather than pnuematic launch. Perhaps it could have an on switch activated by centrifigal force, using whatever they replaced the old mercury contact switches with.   

       We love you [EvilPickels]

       It SOUNDED good on the drawing board...   

       (EvilPickels) I tried not to insult you.

       Tazer Bola's'd be bitch'n.   

       //(EvilPickels) I tried not to insult you.//   

       Well, I was in a bad mood (as almost always), at the time and didn't really know what to think of the comment. Meh, I take it back... I guess...   

       EvilPickels << confused.

       "The weapon is non-lethal and in case the battery dies before it hits the target it would still hurt it because it flies very fast."   

       Why not just hit them with a beanbag then? At least it's plausible. [+-]

       Heard about the XREP? [linky]   

       I don't think you could have heard about this when you posted it, but the idea is now... sort of... baked.

       I'd like to own an XREP. CJ Cherryh preheated that concept in one of her recent Foreigner novels perhaps three or four years ago.
