The Taser shotgun

Well, it won't really be a shotgun per se, but Taser is developing a new stun gun that will use a shotgun shell to allow police to incapcitate a subject at 1oo feet as opposed to the current 25. It doesn't sound like it will be fun to get hit with one of these, either.
Taser President Tom Smith said company engineers were still working on how the shell will latch on to suspects but said the shells will have the same incapacitating effect as traditional Tasers because they will use the same electrical wave form.
I'm waiting for the day when they come out with a shell that stops in mid-air, a cartoon rabbit pops out and beats the subject with a bat, and then gets hit with an electrical jolt.
