Thunder Generator creates some wicked shockwaves
by Mark R
Do you know what you are looking at? It looks like a firehose, doesn’t it? You know how firehoses can disperse crowds? This device, known as the Thunder Generator, can also disperse crowds, and can do a better job.
The Thunder Generator uses ordinary sound with liquid petroleum, cooking gas, and air to create explosions that can create such a shockwave, that they can literally blow people away.
That is, if a person is standing close enough, say, 30 feet, it could kill that person. If a person is standing at the other end of a football field, than they will be stunned by the blast.
The designer, ArmyTec, hopes that this device can be mounted anywhere, and then combined with other Thunder Generator barrels to create a sort of shield around something.
Believe it or not, this device was once used by Israeli farmers to scare birds away. Right now, this amped-up version of the Thunder Generator is starting to scare me away.
Yeah, I’m not looking forward to a future where these devices are used to keep crowds at bay. I suppose it would be better than Soylent Green. Still, if you see this thing coming to a mob, then you had better get as much space between you and it as possible.
