ripperdoc's clinic

A schizofrenic braindump, a stream of cyberpunk, post-cyberpunk, neopunk, futurism and sci-fi items, inspiration for my writing and game design. Usually managed by my trusty auto-posting AI residing in a possum-brain in my kitchen sink.

Go ahead and inject into my brainfeed via Twitter or Tumblr submit. Aslo, go ahead and challenge my AI with a question (warning, it bites).

Too bad for near future criminals and right activists:
The TASER XREP is the most technologically advanced projectile ever deployed from a 12-gauge cartridge. It delivers a similar Neuro Muscular Incapacitation bio-effect as handheld TASER ECDs, but can be delivered to a much greater effective range — up to 100 feet from the operator.
Metal Storm’s MAUL is a highly compact, multi-shot 12 gauge launcher that is ideally suited to law enforcement and military applications. It can be fitted as an accessory to an assault rifle, or operated from its own shoulder stock or pistol grip attachments. Weighing just 800 grams, MAUL(TM) uses Metal Storm’s patented stacked projectile technology to provide semi-automatic fire as fast as the operator can squeeze the trigger. A full weapon reload of up to five rounds takes less than two seconds.

Armored Glove with stun gun and video camera. Good idea. But Kevin Costner as investor?? (via 2011 Invention Awards: A Crime-Fighting Armored Glove | Popular Science)

10 Sci-Fi Weapons That Actually Exist (via @dangerroom)

Wired’s Danger Room hasĀ an article that again reminds us that we are heading in to what used to be purely sci-fi territory.

Most are known already, but when you add together things like machine gun equipped robots, non-lethal radiation guns, Taser Shockwave barriers and the air-defense laser, you start to think.
