A new iPhone case on the market is packing more than just protection for your phone. The Yellow Jacket smartphone stun gun could actually protect you.

“There are people who have concealed carry,” said co-creator Sean Simone. “There are people that have rifles, shotguns, all sorts of stuff. People that don’t carry anything, but the bottom line is you always carry your phone.”

Simone spent the last year perfecting the Yellow Jacket smartphone stun gun case. It’s already sparked interest on the Internet, and now he’s taken what was once just a sketch and introduced it to a wider audience.

“We took it to market,” he said. “That sounds that easy, but we went through various different steps, worked with people in the country, internationally to bring this to market.”

But police warn it should be used with caution. Police say you should get some training if you plan on buying one.

It’s why Yellow Jacket is introducing training videos on their website. The inventors say they’re developing iPhone 5 and Android models and are looking into creating a more robust version for police use.
