Rfiddler Rifle Zaps USB Sticks And RFID Chips Into Oblivion

Sensitive data is no match for the Rfiddler rifle. It can burn out RFID tags and USB sticks by zapping them with a strong electromagnetic field generated by a hacked 0.6kJ photo-flash unit driving a 50-turn copper spool.

So, in addition to frying data, the resulting flash from the gun will also fry your retinas. It even has a built-in MP3 player with a two-watt amp for sound effects. Needless to say, if you do decide to build something like this, I wouldn't go aiming it at credit cards, hard drives, passports or living creatures. Hit the following link for instructions.
