Kait8.com reports: It may look like a gadget straight out of Batman’s tool belt, but police are actually testing a real “bola-wrap” gun. The non-lethal crime-fighting device is made by Wrap Technologies, and fires a cord the company says is made from Kevlar.
The cord wraps around the subject’s body, impeding movement. It could possibly give law enforcement a more effective, less violent way of restraining suspects than popular non-lethal weapons like Tasers and rubber bullets.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office posted video of law enforcement officials testing the device.
