X26 Taser Impacts on Bare Skin in slow motion

For testing purposes, they have traveled to Taser International headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona. They are manufacturers of a Taser X26, the company’s most popular model. Equipped with a high-speed camera, they have filmed their subject stunned at 28,500 frames per second.

The first thing you get to see is a mixture of pink and yellow confetti that explodes from the Taser when it’s fired. That explosion surely isn’t there just to make anyone smile. In fact, each confetti boasts a unique serial number, vital in case police need to find out whether a Taser was fired at a crime scene.

The man who volunteered to be filmed while getting hit with a Taser, Dan Hafen, wasn’t a stuntman, but a colleague who works for the maker of the Phantom camera that The Slow Mo Guys (Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy) used.

The video shows his muscles contracting as the X26 Taser probes break the skin to deliver a high-voltage payload. In the stun gun the voltage peaks at 50,000 volts. “It feels like it’s never going to end,” he said after receiving the shock. “It’s a long five seconds.”

Dan added: “I didn’t really feel the probes. I feel like my muscles have locked up.”
