A bill in North Dakota is aimed at making sure that police didn’t put weapons on drones has turned into a bill that accomplished exactly the opposite. North Dakota police can now put Tasers, pepper spray, and all types of non-lethal weapons on their drones.
It’s been a fast-paced year for 3D printing, with more capital, more companies, and more big ideas than ever. Behind the scenes, we’ve witnessed no fewer than 50 new ventures raising money in the 3D printing sector. That doesn’t include more than 40 crowdfunding projects on Kickstarter alone.
The PW-14®, an auto-protocol switching redundancy telephone, has a modem based circuit-switching protocol that is constantly running in the back ground with near instantaneous uptime that is contained if the primary VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) fails. The PW-14® is ultimate device for any weapons system.
ActiveAlive’s PW-14® is one of the featured exhibitors at the DaVinci Inventor Showcase, which takes place November 14-15, 2014 at the Denver Mart. This is your chance to experience the PW-14® and many other amazing innovations.
The U.S. Air Force has deployed two of its most advanced long-distance surveillance drones to Japan.
Japan has been the world’s playground for design innovation for decades. But now it may become ground zero for the future of something far more hostile: military drones.
History of weapon design is full of examples of human ingenuity run amok. “What are some historical weapons that most people have never heard of,” a group of Quora users asked. The answers provide an amazing insight into the history of war, and offer examples of some of the most ingenious — yet impractical — weaponry ever created.
Laser Weapon System
The U.S. Navy will turn fiction into reality when it deploys its first laser weapon aboard one of its ships this summer. The solid-state Laser Weapons System promises to be able to incinerate aerial drones and speedboats quickly and less expensive that today’s weapons, which typically relies on a finite supply of interceptor missiles that cost roughly $1.4 million a shot. The laser, on the other hand, can be fired continuously and costs just a few bucks per shot. A prototype will be deployed this summer on board the USS Ponce in the Persian Gulf.
Homemade bullets are now part of the growing arsenal of 3D printed weapons. A Tennessee man recently posted a YouTube video demonstrating what kind of damage can be done (hint: a lot) by the plastic shell, created by 3-D-printing enthusiast Tony Griffy, as highlighted by the Daily Dot.
Neuroscience in future military conflict, on the cutting edge of medical science should remember that their work could have other, more harmful uses.
It sounds like science fiction warfare. But directed energy weapons that use wave beams to cause pain, and electrical brain stimulation that boosts a soldier’s combat ability are advances in neuroscience are on the horizon.
MQ-1 Predator Drone
Nearly one third American military aircraft is a drone, according to a congressional report, a 40-fold increase in the drone army from just a few years ago. From tiny man-portable flying wings to behemoth strike planes, unmanned aircraft now make up 31 percent of the military’s air power.
Abraham Karem began tinkering with drones in his garage in 1980.
Abraham Karem, is an engineer who had emigrated from Israel. In 1980 he retreated into his three-car garage in Hacienda Heights outside Los Angeles and, to the bemusement of his tolerant wife, began to build an aircraft.
A nuclear missile in Pakistan.
Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal now totals more than 100 deployed weapons, a doubling of its stockpile over the past several years in one of the world’s most unstable regions, according to estimates by nongovernment analysts.
This is a video that starts slow, but around 3 minutes in… well. It shows every nuclear bomb explosion on the Earth from 1945 — the US test before the bombs dropped on Japan — to 1998, when India and Pakistan joined the madness.
