Local company invents personal protection device

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A local company has combined a smartphone case with a pepper spray personal safety device.
 
Scott McPherson is the CEO of Scottsdale-based Spraytect LLC. The entrepreneur says he was inspired after searching for personal protection devices for his daughter as she prepared for her first semester of college.
 
The case offers protection for both smartphones and their owners. It features a two-piece slide-on case with a removable pepper spray cartridge that attaches to the back. It comes in black, white, pink and turquoise for Apple® iPhone® 4 and 4S models with other platforms and colors planned in the future.
