Here is how you stop boy racers

hat tip Gizmag

I regularly check Gizmag to see what is happeing in all sorts of tech areas. My favourite section is military and that is where I found this product.

The X-Net system can fully arrest a range of vehicles using a unique spiked net design. The non-lethal system is man portable, can be deployed in a matter of seconds and causes minimal damage to target vehicles. The product is so good that QinetiQ has secured a five-year Indefinite Duration, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the US Military, for the supply of QinetiQ’s Vehicle Lightweight Arresting Device (VLAD), the US military designation for the X-Net system.

It should readily stop boy-racers in their tracks. Check out the demonstration video.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
