TASER XREP Causes Incapacitation for 20 Seconds

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Science

XREP

This is just too much taser for anyone to have to endure. The XREP is a projectile that is wireless and self-contained and can be fired from a 12-gauge Less Lethal Shotgun. It can go a distance of up to 65 ft. and autonomously creates neuromuscular incapacitation (NMI) for 20 seconds. But it is this description of what happens should the

victim

subject intervene that makes us recoil in horror and silently scream, “Don’t tase me, bro’.”

“If the subject tries to grab or disconnect the XREP projectile, the reflex engagement electrodes complete a circuit allowing TASER NMI to discharge from the nose, through the subject’s body, out to the hand that grabbed the projectile. This reaction creates a significant spread that allows the XREP projectile pulses to affect a large body mass, causing overpowering NMI.”

By the way, if you wanna see one of us get TASER’d, hit the jump for the video.

NMI Golden Shellback Waterproof Coating

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Misc. Tech, Science

Golden ShellbackThe Northeast Maritime Institute has developed Golden Shellback coating. This waterproof polymer repels oil, dirt, dust, synthetic fluids, hazardous materials, and water based solutions. It can be applied to plastic, metals, ceramic, glass, and other types of sufaces to also become anti-corrosive. While the coating is not yet available to the public, it would appear that the process would involve sending the gadget to them and paying ~$50.00 to $75.00, depending on the size. To see it in action, catch the video featuring lots of electronic devices, including an iPod touch.
