Pull Over Or Get Fried By Microwaves

Microwave Beams Stop Cars Dead.

The idea of an invisible energy beam that shoots from a police car, hits a vehicle of fleeing criminals and stops it is now a reality.

Eureka Aerospace managed to find a way to use microwave energy and direct it to a moving target, disrupt the electronic impulses of the cars electronic control unit (ECU) and in some cases even frying the circuits. Stopping a car dead, putting a end those long famous highway chases California is known for.

The electronics in the vehicle are not disrupted by heat, as with the typical home microwave for cooking. The magnified beam of 300 MHz, with so-called "vulnerable" frequencies that disrupt ignition and other functions. The beam is focused enough to pass any collateral damage to vehicles or any type of electronics, without harming people.

I can think of a lot of uses for this technology that would help stop a lot of crime.
