Futuristic handcuffs would administer shocks, drugs

A patent for next-generation handcuffs offers a future in which the detained can be zapped directly from their restraints, and even injected with a medication, sedative, irritant, paralytic, or other fine substance.

Sometimes an invention comes along that makes you excited about the future. For a long time, it seems that handcuffs have been stuck in the movies of old. They restrain you, but, odd for our interactive world, that’s all they seem to do. Might I tempt you toward futuristic handcuffs that will offer you a small involuntary judder? I am grateful to Gizmodo for discovering that Patent Bolt has lucked upon a patent that offers bound(less) excitement. For these are handcuffs that offer surprises. Indeed, they might make the idea of being tased, bro, not quite so bad. The patent is called “Apparatus and System For Augmented Detainee Restraint.” The augmentations it offers are truly quite something. You see, these handcuffs are “configured to administer electrical shocks when certain predetermined conditions occur.” These shocks might be “activated by internal control systems or by external controllers that transmit activation signals to the restraining device.” This progressive tool is the brainchild of Scottsdale Inventions.
