These cellphones are stunning
44 year old Michael Van Peter Hout was fined $8,000 for smuggling stun guns into Australia without receiving approval. The interesting part is how this nefarious deed was accomplished. Mr. Van Peter Hout had received a package from China back in December. Inside were twenty weapons disguised to look like cellphones. It is a good thing that the authorities caught on to the deception, otherwise we would imagine that if the weapons got into the hands of a cellphone user, he/she could have been in for quite a shocking experience. Still, we have seen some of the strange handsets that have come out of China including the infamous razor-cellphone combo. Whose to say that these weren't simply just unfinished prototypes of a Taser-cellphone combination that was being devised?
