Not exactly groundbreaking...

This came out two years ago in Japan, for 210000 yen or, for at the time, £1000. How can they justify tripling the price on a two year old product?

Here it is, same product and more than half the price!

Electrical confusion

@Anonymous Coward: But one thing for sure is, a -110V shock would hurt more than a -10V one.

Are we taking into account AC vs DC voltage, the frequency at which the AC voltage is, and the wattage of the current? These things aren't as absolute as they first seem!

A bit late!

This isn't news! It's not happening now either, as I have it on good authority that this event happened a good 12000000 years ago!
