If I were going to do it I would simply use the case and build the guts of the taser from scratch. It would still look like an iPod but pack a different sort of punch. BUT, I'm not going to do it and if you don't know how to do the circuits you really shouldn't be messing with this - you could get hurt or hurt someone else.

Remember: Volts kick, current kills. Don't play with electricity unless you know what you're doing and are willing to take the consequences.
