Electromagnetic Pulse Cannon | Stops Cars Instantly

You might have heard of electromagnetic pulses cutting steel in milliseconds, but it can also be used to stop the cars instantly. Surprised? Well, you might be! However, built by Canadian company Eureka Aerospace, the Canon is a prototype yet it could stop any car built after 1970s.

It is done with the High-Powered Electromagnetic System (HPEMS), which is suitcase-sized electromagnetic pulse (EMP) cannon, weighting 50-55lbs. It works effectively on modern cars (not built before 1970s) that rely upon microprocessors and various electronics for their engine. This system immediately disables a car or truck from 656 feet away, and that too without hurting the driver or innocent passerby.

This EMP cannon may come out to be a handy tool for the police, but in the present form it’s too awkward to be placed in police car or helicopter. As a result, Eureka Aerospace intends to shrink the device to the size of a handgun, making it easy to mount on police helicopters, cars, and military vehicles, which can be used to put an end to deadly high-speed chases, and stopping suicide bombers from a safe distance.

I found this post on Auto Motto It was posted a while back. I wish it was ready now!

The Audi Calamaro Concept was developed by Tibor for a design competition, organized by Porsche Hungary. The futuristic concept looks like a cross between a boat, a ski and perhaps even a stealth aircraft. According to the designer, the shape is inspired by “the bone of the cuttlefish”. Being a design of the future, we guess, the Calamaro will be powered by clean fuel options. We can’t really comprehend how this car will take off, land or even fly, simply because we can’t see any propellers, thrusters or for that matter, even exhausts.
