Well worry no more, as a new kickstarter has emerged for Atomyzer - an Indian startup looking to integrate a spray can into a rather bulky plastic case. According to their official page, the case will be good for up to 50 sprays, and will be compatible for perfumes, deodorants, and of course, the humble pepper spray.
