Video: Turn your iPhone into an ECD?
A viral YouTube video claims to turn your smart phone into a "stun gun"
A new iPhone accessory called STUNFONE claims to “transform your iPhone into a stun gun.” A video posted to YouTube says that all you have to do is connect the device to your power connection and hold down both volume buttons.
“The STUNFONE has a voltage of about 90,000 volts when the battery is charged and the Bluetooth is disabled,” says the inventor, who then proceeds to shock his friend with the device.
The video is almost definitely a spoof, but according to the unofficial Apple Weblog, setting up a stun gun to be triggered by the volume buttons isn’t entirely impossible, but it would require an additional power source.
