‘RAPS: Remote Auxillary Power System’ Steals Electricty From Any Power Line (video)


The RAPS (Remote Auxiliary Power System) can attach to any power line and provide juice to any attached gadgets or equipment. It was developed for combat soldiers in the field who don’t have access to a power outlet. Think of it as a grappling hook for electricity. The soldier would throw and hook the device to any power line. An internal razor blade pierces the lines protective layer allowing it to form a connection and draw power down to the converter box where safe, usable electricity can be used. Sounds safe, sort of. But how do you remove the hook once you’re juicing is complete?

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
