The Armstar is a self-defense system that is worn on the forearm and allows the person wearing it to deliver a 750k volt shock to an attacker. Chief Innovation Officer Tylor Garland described it as a wearable tactical response system and demonstrated how the arm band's stun capacity, LED flashlight, green laser pointer, and HD camera function. By consolidating the tools into an armband, it cuts down the weight on a belt by 50%, freeing up the user.
"What we're trying to do is take a lot of the weight that's on [law enforcement officers' belts] and make it wearable, lighter, and more integrated," Garland said.
The California company is in talks with federal agencies about creating versions of the Armstar that are tailored to law enforcement needs.
