Making a Taser™ from a disposable camera

Laura Swisher, co-host of "Unscrewed with Martin Sargent," learns how to make a 600-volt Taser™ out of a crappy $5 camera [don't miss the video highlight].

These disposable cameras (about $5 dollars a pop) have a capacitor that can store up to 600 volts of stopping power. When the capacitor discharges those volts, it delivers an amperage comparable to stun guns. Perfect for our shocking device.

What you need

  • A glove

  • Some wire

  • A battery holder

  • A one-time-use camera, in our case, the Fujifilm QuickSnap camera
