1.8 gogawatts!?!??! that's like 1.21 Jiggawatts!
2006-01-18 06:22:00 PM  
How much just for the plans?
2006-01-18 06:22:18 PM  
So you can hook this thing up so that is aims out your trunk, and when that jack@ss starts tailgating you on the freeway, turn the sucker on?

2wolves: How much just for the plans?

18.00, according to the page.

Missed that. Thanks.

Oooh, greenlit. This site is dead.

You could do some naughty, naughty stuff with the items on that page.
2006-01-18 06:35:19 PM  
Yeah, just what I need so I can go BACK TO THE...something.

A pinch is a device which creates, like, a cardiac arrest for any broadband electrical circuitry. Better yet, a pinch is a bomb - now, but without the bomb. See, when a nuclear weapon detonates, it unleashes an electromagnetic pulse which shuts down any power source within its blast radius. Now that tends not to matter in most cases, because the nuclear weapon usually destroys anything you might need power for anyway. But see, a pinch creates a similar electromagnetic pulse, but without the fuss of mass destruction and death. So instead of Hiroshima, you'd be getting the seventeenth century.

It was I who allowed the alliance to know the location of the shockwave generator...
2006-01-18 06:42:36 PM  
The main page of the site has tons o' cool stuff.. Class IV laser guns that can pulse holes through steel.. ooh and Tesla Coils.. HUGE Tesla coils.. drool
2006-01-18 06:54:50 PM  
Awesome. I've been looking for a new home security system. And one for my car, too!
2006-01-18 06:57:45 PM  
I've got one of them at my house, except that it's smaller and made by Bose.
2006-01-18 07:06:32 PM  
My friend makes these(yes my infamous hacker friend). Its really cool, until he tries to use a microphone on yahoo with that think on, because you all hear are pulses of static,like a really bad techno beat
2006-01-18 07:21:06 PM  
you can make a directional, one-shot EMP out of a cardboard tube, metal pipe, transformer wire, a decent cherrybomb, a car battery, and a TV flyback transformer.

/my nextdoor neighboor with his car alarm is dead...
2006-01-18 07:25:40 PM  
Or... for about $50.00, you can just buy the "Members Only" jacket, save $10,950, and still look achieve "nerd" status.

But I do like Its_just_the_way_it_has_to_be_What_What's idea.
2006-01-18 07:49:34 PM  
Hmmm... so that guy with the stereo that sets off car alarms could be having car trouble...
2006-01-18 07:54:46 PM  
Honey, get me Santa's unlisted number!
2006-01-18 07:55:24 PM  
...and the thread goes live!
2006-01-18 07:55:34 PM  
Feh. Just steal the President's controller, type in the World Code, and walk away.

"The trick is to generate a high enough power pulse to fry the electronic control processor modules. This could be a lot simpler if the vehicle was covered in plastic or fiber glass rather than metal. The shielding of the metal body offers a challenge to the researcher to develop a practical system. A system could be built that could do this but would be costly, large and produce collateral damage to friendly targets."
2006-01-18 07:58:20 PM  
I just want one with one point twenty one jigawatts...
2006-01-18 07:58:37 PM  
The headline had me thinking it was some kick-ass Macromedia Shockwave generator. Curse you ethanol!!!

/feels like total farkwit
2006-01-18 07:58:55 PM  
That is .59 gigawatts too much power. On the other hand, you might be able to slow down to about 60 mph to activate the flux capacitor.
2006-01-18 07:58:59 PM  
mmm .. HERF guns...

/Hang up and drive!

Korovyov Escape From LA is one of the few movies I never expected to be brought up on or quoted on Fark. Guess I was wrong.

Yes, china, thats right ALL the tea.....

popular mechanics had an article on how to build one about a year ago.

Devices described are intended for experienced researchers evil geniuses and qualified personnel who are aware of all hazards and liabilities in use of this equipment
2006-01-18 08:02:33 PM  
I think that without the nuclear part of EMP, you're really missing out.

That's friggin awesome. Just imagine all the riced-out Hondas (and their stereos) you could fry...

If it wasn't him, it would've been me.....

I love that movie for its campy badness and the horrible CGI. Not to mention that, camp aside, Snake Plisskin is one of the baddest mofos in movie history....

that's where I see this place advertised all the time...

Imagine all the secks toys that thing could run!

2006-01-18 08:08:32 PM  
I have every intention of modding that to use it as a bigass motherfarkin' guitar amplifier.
2006-01-18 08:10:44 PM  
what about the sharks, with frickin' laser beams??
2006-01-18 08:12:17 PM  
Oh boy. It's like a combination between the Matrix, Ocean's 11, and Back to the Future.
2006-01-18 08:13:04 PM  
That's a great site...
I love the laser pointers that you can see on "low-level clouds"
2006-01-18 08:13:36 PM  
These guys are a ripoff ... they're selling stuff from Edmund's Scientifics for three times the price. They even used the exact same photo ...
2006-01-18 08:14:10 PM  
I would so love one of these to point at certain people's houses during the middle of the superbowl...:D
2006-01-18 08:14:43 PM  
I made something like this back in high school with a magnetron from an old microwave. Theoretically yes if you pointed one of these at a car, assuming it's computer controlled fuel injected, it would stop the car.

Heh. It's a remarkably cheesy movie, isn't it.

'course, one might wonder why even /have/ a World Code. An "everybody but us" code, maybe, but... that's not a movie one should think too much about. *shrug*

2006-01-18 08:15:05 PM  
Or, you could spend 100 Minerals, 225 Vespene Gas and 2 Supply...
2006-01-18 08:15:56 PM  
Screw EMP I want the laser gun they sell
2006-01-18 08:16:01 PM  
I can't look at this stuff without imagining the ACME logo emblazoned on them, and a coyote rubbing his hands over a blueprint.
