Boeing demonstrates anti-car weapon

Boeing demonstrates a non-lethal weapon that completely disables electronic devices.

Am I the only one who sees the potential havoc such a device in the hands of a terrorist bike hippie could wreak on our nation’s roads? Bzzzt! and every car within 50 yards is nonoperative.



More info at from Boeing here.

    Probably have to carry this item the trailer – looks too big for a seatbag. Can be aimed at a single car. Might be able to automate it at that car that just Jerry Browned (passed too close for all you non-CA riders) me! I’m ordering one now!

    I don’t suppose you can keep the Tweets out of the comments RSS? It is a bit much.

    Or, alternately, an unusually nasty motorist using it against a 787 taking off northbound low over the Everett 526 Freeway.

    Sorry about that — didn’t realize that was happening. I’ll fix as soon as I can get to a PC. Thanks for letting me know!

    Not just the errant driver: don’t forget to zap the stoplight that can’t detect your bike.

    *Anyone else notice something falling down at the top row of computers at the exact moment the screens go down? Watch it, timed @ :41 to :43. Pencil or what? Harmless, no damage? Why’s something get knocked down besides a computer then? LOL
