That just HAS to be some kind of sham or hoax or somebody is trying to play with my very fragile nerd-feelings again <.<;,

On the other Hand, after some more investigation there is this:

The only glaring flaw i can see with this is the show stopper of the batteries only having an efficiency of 40W/Kilo so that's a bit of a bummer, but if battery tech makes some progress that could be improved i think . .
'any kind of discussion of randomness ALWAYS WILL EQUATE to being able to critically hit a mech's reactor by firing a micro beam laser while facing 80 degrees to the side, shooting the ground, which would cause a random explosion which would randomly crit his entire team's reactors which would randomly cause the server itself to explode which would randomly generate a strange quark which would randomly hit the earth and randomly randomness randomfapp the shit fapp random!'

Well, the real show stopper is that it only works on highly electrically conductive surfaces, like sheets of copper. The concept itself is not new, but I don't think anyone has ever investigated using i this way. I can definitely see this taking off (pun intended)
don't bother sending me PMs, I probably won't be reading them in time.
