Have you heard of this? I was listening to a talk radio host interview the guy who invented this 'thing', and it's pretty scary. Supposedly this thing was demonstrated on the discovery channel, and to numerous governments, but the French are the only ones showing interest in it, and the guy was saying that he is probably going to sell it to the French. I heard tidbits of information about what it can do- Shine this 'light' on any living being, and it dies almost instantly, shine it on any object, metal, wood, whatever, and it becomes transparent, as in, you can see completely through any type of material on earth. Shine the 'light' on anything that is electronic, and you destroy it, it can take down airplanes in the sky, miles above you. The guy said he could get the beam to reach up to about 80,000 feet. If this is real, if it fell into the wrong hands, man....that would suck. What's your take on it?

You mean this thing?

Lol. I needed a good laugh. Here's the story, it's too long to paste here so I will just link.

Here's the inventor, Troy Hurtubise:

Oh god, I love this guy! You see that suit in the corner in the top picture? Well, that my friend, is the URSUS MARK VII Grizzly Bear Suit, invented by Troy himself. Apparently Troy was once attacked by a grizzly, and decided to design a bear-proof suit so he would be safe in the woods. He even made a movie about it. (It was a big hit in Canada, by the way.)

Troy is the winner of the 1998 Ig Nobel Prize in the field of Safety Engineering. His Ig Nobel citation reads: Troy Hurtubise, of North Bay, Ontario, for developing, and personally testing a suit of armor that is impervious to grizzly bears.

One of his other inventions is the "Magnetic Blast Cushion"

That test dummy is still alive today, thanks to Troy's innovative magnetic armor. Incidentally, he is also the inventor of Fire Paste (http://baytoday.ca/content/news/details.asp?c=63) .

This guy doesn't strike me as the next Stephen Hawking, so if he can sell his invention to the French for 40 Grand, he has my blessing.

edit to add: Just to be fair to Troy, I saw a video of his armor, and it did stop shotgun and .308 rounds. It's a layered matrix of kevlar, steel, aluminum, and his own inventions, "fire paste" and "1313". How much of the protection was due to his inventions vs. the steel and kevlar would be up to a lab to determine. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I saw the thing about Fire Paste. I thought it worked until I saw this. Too bad we can't get this guy to post here.

LOL that is some funny stuff. It was my first time listening to that particular show, and the way these guys were talking, they sounded like they were dead serious. I'd never heard of it before so I figured you might know something about it, since it's some weird electro-magnetic gizmo and you have alot of knowledge about stuff like that.
