Taser's new "killer" product

Taser, maker of the now-ubiquitous non-lethal taser gun, is poised to release their latest innovation on July 9: non-lethal, wireless shotgun shells called "Taser XREP".


There are not too many details on the site, but I'm sure that more will be available on July 9.  Presumably this technology will initially only be available for law enforcement use only, but it's not unrealistic to expect a non-militarized version after a year or so -- similar to the original Taser pistol product.

Non-lethal is a growing market and allowing agencies to turn lethal weapons into dual-use non-lethal weapons seems like a pretty smart play.
