Teenager Hacks His Camera to Shock People and Gets Arrested

A 14-year-old kid got arrested for rigging his camera to shock people, after reading "instructions on the Internet" to do so and taking it to school, Boing Boing reports.

The article doesn't say whether he actually caused someone to be shocked or not, but this just reeks of prank-the-dorky-Science-teacher.

What's interesting about Boing Boing's post is that they point out that they were the ones that posted those instructions. So, uh, I guess it works!

Please, everyone, use this as a cautionary tale and NOT do it: the hacked camera delivers a 600-volt shock (significantly higher, I assume, than the voltage produced by the old sibling-making-static-on-the-rug shock). Owie.

they sell "pens" and such that shock you, how is this any different? someone tricked me with one of those pens in high school, and it does hurt. i don't see how that's any different than making it yourself.

I've often wished I could do this to various items I own - especially my vehicles!! If people would keep their mitts off of stuff that doesn't belong to them - they wouldn't GET shocked! =P
