If you get groped, all you have to do is turn a key in the sleeve, and watch your harasser throw his hands in the air (at least according to the instructional diagram below.) Of course, the jacket comes with a rubberized lining to prevent any shocks to your own system, and in some states might even require a license to own! Still, it beats hunting through a purse for the mace. Read more here at Wired.
