Hall Pass

18 Oct

This isn’t some crazy movie set-piece for the next Resident Evil film, this is actually a hallway defense system created by Applied Energetics Inc, (formerly Ionatron,) a company that deals in Military level considerations on how to electrocute things.

The tingling means it’s working!

Applied Energetics, Inc. is slowly going under, due possibly to their habit of paying their executives and not their scientists, but also possibly because they used their lightning wielding skills to create a device for the US Military that couldn’t actually carry out its job of destroying roadside-IEDs by throwing electricity at them.

Still – they certainly look neat, and I feel confident that, while the folks overseas may not be any safer, that hallway is hella defended.

    I’ve seen movies and those military lightning machines never defeat Godzilla.

      I feel like they should be re-purposed to be the world’s largest trombones, or possibly overpowered hacksaws.
