Some of you may remember a sci-fi series last fall on CBS called "Threshold". It was an aliens trying to take over the Earth using human beings plot. The people fighting the aliens developed a shell containing an electric charge which was fired from a gun that could stun the alien/human. Guess what Taser has developed?http://www.engadget.com/2006/02/15/tasers-electrifying-new-xrep-shotgun-fired-projectile/The new XREP, which stands for Extended Range Electro-Muscular Projectile, contains a fully functional Taser circuit payload inside the shell housing for a 12-gauge shotgun, which is apparently among the most common "shoulder fired launchers" in use by law enforcement and military personnel. Unlike handgun-style Tasers, there is no wire tethering the payload to the gun, which allows for a 30-meter range but takes away the shooter's ability to lead the "non-compliant" around on a de facto leash.
