Tomorrow, 27 July 2009, Taser International plans to formally unveil their new "X3" taser.
This blog has already observed that the published demonstration video revealed that they still prefer to avoid shooting their "perfectly safe" (sic) devices into the CHESTS of their idiot volunteers. They're sticking to the Scared Sh_tless of Cardiac Death Demo-only-in-the-BACKS policy.
And we noted what appeared to be a lack of NMI with the first idiot volunteer on the left.
But the Taser X3 birthday bash has been overshadowed by the Braidwood Inquiry report that concluded that tasers are capable of causing death, even in healthy adults, by any of several death mechanisms.
Sucks to be Taser International these days.
And then there's the newly published details of the anal-fetish incident in Boise. Hey - way 'Too Much Info' there folks.
So the well-dressed Taser folks must be wondering if they're going to be getting any strange questions tomorrow.
I'm interested in the X3 waveform. Has it changed yet again, perhaps eliminating the possibly-deadly DC pulse seen only on the X26?
If they removed the DC pulse from the X3 waveform then it smells like an admission with respect to the safety of the X26.
If they didn't change the waveform, then they're playing the ultimate double-or-nothing bet on a hand of cards that is already shown to be a loser.
