Score power from your neighbor!

Check out this neat device called RAPS designed and created by Dave Coates of Dayton, OH.
RAPS was originally created so that Air Force personnel in the field could suck electricity out of power lines and recharge their equipment. The device is a hook that pierces a power line’s outside layer and then converts the AC power into DC power for consumer devices. Looks easy to use. [via]
