Microwave Beam Used to Stop Cars Dead

High speed chases may be fun to watch on TV, but they are dangerous to the bystanders, the officers involved, and the suspects being chased. A California company called Eureka Aerospace claims to have developed a device that emits a low powered, short duration microwave burst that fries the electrical system of cars. Too heavy and short ranged to be an effective tool now, they're seeking funding to create a practical model. This is a great idea, ten times over.
