A dark alley may be a great place to escape the wind noise when you're trying to chat on your phone, but it's also a great place to get mugged if you happen to be in an unsavory neighborhood. Adding a little personal protection to your gadgets may not be a bad idea and a new iPhone case paired with a canister of pepper spray will do just that.
While the idea behind the Smart Guard case may seem a little ridiculous, the pepper spray canister is fitted on the iPhone case in a way that allows users to spray the irritating substance while they're talking on the phone. Obviously, we don't condone the use of pepper spray unless your in real physical danger, but it would be nice to know that any hoodlums trying to snatch your precious iPhone would have a pretty difficult time.
The case retails for around $50 and surprisingly comes in three different colors – white, pink and black. It is also available for a couple different phone models including the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Sadly, it looks like its only available for order in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Thankfully, if you do get your hands on one you won't have to download an app to make it work.
