First Stun Gun was a Glove

Shaking hands with this glove could be a shocking experience! Looks like the stun guns we see today had some interesting beginnings.

"MORE punch than can be found in a box-glove is contained in a new electric glove invented by Cirilo Diaz of Cuba for use by police while handling rough characters or in quelling riots. Persons contacted by an officer wearing the glove receive a 1,500-volt shock, sufficient to remove all traces of fight. A half-pound battery worn on the belt supplies the power, all wiring being concealed beneath the coat."
