Attention Garage Scientists: Your New Hero Has Arrived

A combination of sleep deprivation, sinusitis, and lack of time have conspired to drag down the frequency of my posts. I'm sure I could fit in Nigerian terrorists and the former cast of The Cosby Show somehow in this conspiracy, but really...the first three are more than adequate.

Anyhow, here's something that caught my eye a few days ago (Moffatt already beat me to it).

All those geek-boy and spook fantasies of looking through walls, detecting stealth technology, and shutting down electronics at will have apparently crossed over to reality. A Canadian man, with the help of a recurring dream that told him how to build it (and $30,000), built a device he calls the Angel Light that can allegedly do all of the above.

It sounds like something out of The Weekly World News, but MIT, the French Government, and Saudi intelligence officials have become involved in the project. I'm not sure whether the man's invention will turn out to be valid, but I have a strange feeling it's authentic. The article (with a photo gallery) is located here.
