Say hello to the Super Talon Ultra Net Launcher Kit – the handy non-lethal way to stop criminals in their tracks.

The Japanese have gone and done it again. This amazing device, that definitely would not fit conveniently in your back pocket, deploys a weighted net which ensnares would-be attackers. The user can then sit back and wait for assistance.

Based on the advert for the self-defense gadget, that assistance is most likely going to be germophobic police with large grabbing devices, so they don’t have to touch any fugitives directly.

I’m not entirely sure what has happened since this advert aired, but according to Amazon it’s now meant for use on birds and rodents as a humane trap.


But at $1,999.99 plus $4.95 for shipping (roughly £1,403) I’d hope it would be able to take down human intruders too.
