Very interesting reading for the technically inclined.

Even if you are not so inclined, you may want to briefly skim the article.

In LA... pointing a "gun" around that looks like it has a suppressor on the end.... good way to get shot.

I like/regularly read THG, too.

Application? :scrutiny: :confused:

I'm imagining this being a predecessor to other "small arms" in electronic warfare. And no, I'm not sure that I'm just kidding. :uhoh:

The idea is that it allows you to read the presence of bluetooth devices (and I believe get information from them) at ranges exceeding a mile. Using two devices would allow you to triangulate position.

Basically it takes advantage of the fact that people are emitting a lot more data than they think they are. The guys are idiots for making the device look like a weapon though.
