Posted:Tazers, now I'm not 100% sure how strictly legal they are but has anyone ever had much of a fiddle with them?

Without sounding like a completely sick nutter, (I'm really not ya know!) I was playing with one over the weekend, making different parts of the body move by sending the shock through another part of the body.

I don't really know where I'm going with it but I would like to work it into some sort of act somehow.

Also if you have played/are thinking of playing with one it really is important you don't be silly with it.

They are VERY dangerous, and can cause injury.

Ta!

good try but complete failure tongue



i've played with one of those 'exercise machines for the couch potato' things - the little shock pack with pads to stick to yourself that contracts your muscles so you don't have to.



they're great fun on the face biggrin





tasers are the gun's that fire a barb on a wire usually but i'm guessing you have one of those handheld self-defence jobbies - how large is the current/voltage on it?



genius idea though mate - i reckon this could make for a very cool act (or even several acts).



frankenstein style gradual reanimation, a live puppet show or just an electro-shock fetish dungeon spektakularrrr smile





on the safety side of things, avoid bursts longer than a couple of seconds and i'd seriously recommend speaking to a doctor to get a checkup and to help you consider any possible health risks from repeated shocks...

Yup, already discovered that, found a nerve on the neck that made my mouth open and close ubblol

Already discovered that i can't do it for very long, i have quite a few strange burn type marks that are like a circle with a dot in the middle.

Its not my tazer, it belongs to a friend that owns an animal park and they have it for emergency animal control but never use it, and rather that barbs shooting out it is shaped like a torch, with two small metal rods coming out the end from which the current presumably goes between.

Makes a really good snappy sound. smile

And yes it was the live puppet show esque thing i was thinking of, not sure of the voltage...will check, I'm seeing him later anyway.

And I'm not a nutter, I just like experimenting, there is a difference ubbloco

some boring but potentially important info for ya (source: http://www.nova-usa.com/stratbucker-study.html)

most important in all that is the risk associated with location of shock in relation to your heart.



seems at first glance that you're pretty safe as long as you don't have a pacemaker, an unusual heart rhythm or a history of heart attack in your family - and of course you should strictly adhere to the "never zap my tits" rule wink

Posted:Hmm....won't be using it on my tongue...

Like i said, i'm interested in using it for performance, its quite fun inding out exactly where to put it to make your hand/foot/elbow etc twitch sharply.

Although after reading that link(thanks cole) I think I'll go to the doctors before i go much further with it and have a check up, and i also need to check the legalities of using it aswell.

New toy though-yay!!!!! bounce

Posted:from the stratbucker study:

 Written by: science dudes


Finally, the device was discharged into the mucous membranes of the tongue of an anesthetized animal to ascertain the effects on mucous membranes. Muscle twitching did occur but no visual damage to the membranes was noted. Again, the effect directly on the eye was not tested. Until this is more thoroughly evaluated, one should be cautious about the use of this device in the face area.



this is just too funny to be a real report ubblol

Posted:I have in my possesion (I don't really know how) a nerve stimulator used by doctors to, umm, stimulate nerves. same princicle as a tazer i suppose, just more controlled. We only really used it for making bets - who could take the most current for the longest time on a specific body area. This was not as crazy as it seems - there was financial reward! kind of like sport - the better you do, the more you get paid ubbrollsmile

We didn't really manage to do any tricks though. Hmmm, my brother is sleeping. I wonder if it still works *evil chuckle*...

Not sure if you'd need a licence or something to use it in a show or what, but definitely check UK laws before taking it outside your house.

Posted:there's a point on your lower arm where you can get first the thumb, then, when increasing the voltage, the whole hand to twitch. We did it in physiology, it's a test on how fast your nerves are, so should be easy to find it somewhere on the web (and don't try this at home kids...). It was quite good fun, my whole hand (and lower arm with it) lifted off the table every second. My mate suggested getting one for the band so the instruments were in time wink



But they usually take quite a while to adjust (find the right place and the right voltage), so that could make it a bit difficult for a show. Some of the nerves run very close to each other, so if you hit the wrong one and start at a highish voltage that might be a bad idea.

And getting there slowly during a show wouldn't work.



Try looking for "nerve conductivity", that might give you a few ideas.

well watched a really terrible programme yesterday evening called Men In White coats or something like that and they were experimenting on there with electrical currents making muscles work etc, and they did manage to get quite a bit of movement, especially to the arms.


They used those muscle toning pads, so perhaps rather than a tazer I could get some of them and play with the voltage.

This ould be fun...if very slightly painful redface shrug meh...its worth it. smile

seriously though, i'd get the muscle excerciser, it'd be good to have an adjustable level... personally it freaks me out to get shocked, but then i've been REALLY shocked before by 12 volts at very high amperage and it didn't really do it for me... ubbloco

Didnt someone do some tests and basically say that they do nothing for increasing your muscles fitness?

Thought i read it somewhere but cant remember where or if it was reliable

If you turn the voltage down enough that muscles aren't twitching, and only sensory nerves are being stimulated, it's a bit like being tickled, just... different, as it's under the skin too.



And no I haven't being experimenting on myself umm



That's the kind of shock you get from an unearthed computer, and it's very distracting when you're trying to find lost screws.
