    Well, if it works in a laboratory, it might well work in an enclosed ship, submarine, aircraft roosterpit, etc. See more info on it here at this linky. Very cool!

    now they just need to get the non-nice individuals that drive through my neighborhood at 4am blaring their stereos to go to california and circle that wild fire and crank it up....

    at worst they`ll get burned up and i don`t have to get woken up again..

    So, something good may eventually come from Dubstep, after all....

    Also, my first thought was that this is a prototype for a Romulan Disruptor !
