Stage 2 - Magnetic Bullets
 
I remember as a boy my father using high powered magnets to clear old hard drives and diskettes (floppy's).

Couldn't we develop some sort of 'magnetic bullet'. You know... get a magnet on the inside of the robots and scramble the memory...?? Like a robot poison bullet?!

Do magnets work on flash memory?

Can't we just make ice bullets like they do in the movies and then short circuit them that way

There are these nasty little boys...

I think so.... you could probably disrupt the circuits at least... Think EMP (Electro-magnetic Pulse) but without the pulse. Kinda like a robotic cancer.

myth busters proved this impossible. And I think you'd need more water than 1 bullet as I've spilt water into my keyboard a few times and it's fine.

I think we'd need some sort of 'plastic gun' and a bullet with an armour piercing head... or a 'savo' (sp?) that would shield the bullet from the gun.

The surrounding circuitry, yes. My main concern is that they'll be sufficiently shielded to avoid being damaged. It's always a trade-off... be too physically heavy (due to shielding), or be susecptible to EMP... Somehow I doubt they'll miscalculate the requirements. ;)

There isn't much circuitry inside a keyboard.

Hmmm.. yes... but if we're poking holes through that shielding with armour piercing rounds we'll eventually get through it... or are individual circuits shielded?

Got me there :P

As a general rule, no. But RF (radio frequency) circuitry is often shielded from other circuitry as a means to ensure proper function within the RF section, AND to protect the other circuitry from the RF section. Hence the reason why an EM bomb can be so effective...

Okay.... so for or against my idea?
Could you improve the short comings of this idea?

bithead 08-14-2007 02:29 PM

For the record, I like the idea of {somehow} getting EM bombs inside the robots... off to the laboratory!!!...
