Hi guys

Just joined, this forum looks good, so Im lookin forward to be the member of it;)

anyway, I need help with one thing:

need to make a shocking device - somethin like taser -> but - not to kill you or harm you in anyway -> but just to make you feel it - but cant harm you (when you are helathy I mean..:)
I was thinkin about using a camera flash, but it seems it would be way too much volts and probably not the easiest setup for regular usage..?

I found this diagram somewhere, - there was a circuit - very simple with a door bell, 9V battery, doorbell transformer and potentiometer -> and 2 electrodes at the ends -> I guess it was in order to make the 9V DC output into AC for the transformer -> in order to multiply the voltage??

can somebody advise - what parts would I need ? (I dont know what bell, what trasformer etc would I need...

thank you in advance

Well, I'm afraid that you have just run up against our Terms of Service, which in part states:

6. Restricted topics. The following topics are regularly raised however are considered "off-topic" at all times and will result in Your thread being closed without question:
  • Any kind of over-unity devices and systems
  • Automotive modifications
  • Devices designed to electrocute or shock another person
  • LEDs to mains
  • Phone jammers
  • Rail guns and high-energy projectile devices
  • Transformer-less power supplies
Now if you want something that IS safe which will simply startle someone, then consider a Joy Buzzer:

No batteries required, either.

Please don't attempt to make a device that will shock someone electrically. It can only take a few milliamperes of current to trigger someone's heart into a mode called "ventricular fibrillation" - the heart beats too fast to actually pump any blood, and the victim dies very shortly afterwards.
