Weaponized Capacitor
Weaponized Capacitor 1
Inventor William Murdoch
Weaponized Capacitor, a tranquilizer dart gun, is the Murdochian taser introduced in Season 8 of Murdoch Mysteries.

The cool steampunk-looking gadget showcases Murdoch’s great skills at creating complex devices that solve even more complex situations. There is nothing more awesome than giving a super-intelligent detective the James Bond aura, circa 1900s.

The Weaponized Capacitor is a forerunner to the modern TASER; one of the less-than lethal weapons issued to law enforcement in various countries including Canada.
