Women are often mistaken as the weaker sex. And while they may not be able to arm-wrestle an average-sized man, what women lack in strength they make up for in resources and smarts.

Through the use of technology, women no longer need to fear walking alone. Spraytect has invented an US$40 iPhone cover that not only protects a phone, but also protects any woman (or man, for that matter) against an attack. The phone cover marries style and safety by holding a small tube of mace for added protection on the go.

It’s a protective case for a smartphone with a removable pepper spray cartridge attached to the back of the iPhone case. It’s readily accessible so you’re protected anywhere and anytime. The case can also act as a kickstand to prop your phone up at any angle.
