I watched the terminator 5 movie recently during a restless night. It was horrible, none of this was happening. If they had hired you for just a couple of hours they would have easily make a couple of $100mln extra at the box office! bearish Posts: 5278 Joined: February 3rd, 2011, 2:19 pm ### Re: Defend yourself against the coming robot rebellion We had systems for welding 20 cm oil well pipe in a single fraction-of-a-second pulse, inductive pulse shapers to convert 1 megaamp @ 50 V to 10 kA @ 5kV for rail guns, and were working on electric catapults for aircraft. Of course, if one really wants to fry robots, drones, and cellphones at a distance, the easiest hack is to put the guts of a microwave oven on a satellite TV dish -- 1800 watts of directional RF at 2.4 GHz would burn-out all the radios and a good chunk of the wiring in those devices. And, if aimed at a cornfield, popcorn on the stalk! outrun Posts: 4573 Joined: April 29th, 2016, 1:40 pm ### Re: Defend yourself against the coming robot rebellion We had systems for welding 20 cm oil well pipe in a single fraction-of-a-second pulse, inductive pulse shapers to convert 1 megaamp @ 50 V to 10 kA @ 5kV for rail guns, and were working on electric catapults for aircraft.
