Taser gloves help you to keep the bad people away

If you want to feel like a Greek God this winter, how about a pair of these homemade Taser gloves that turn you into a 21st century Zeus, hurling bolts of electricity at your enemies?

Built using the capacitors from some disposable cameras, a couple of AA batteries, rubber gloves and some other bits and pieces all mounted in Altoids tins, the gloves appear to deliver a pretty good jolt that should send any potential muggers running for their mommies.

Of course the legal ramifications of doing any of this could be a problem.
