I was just concerned that some of those blockers might affect somebody's pacemaker. My mother has one, and she is not supposed to be around things that put out microwaves.
Radio Shack has a cute little remote-controlled car which has the pocket-size transmitter and everything for twenty bucks. For a two-people demonstration, one could have the transmitter in his pocket and the other have the little car in the pocket. When the transmitter is clicked, the wheels turn on the car.
I can't go into detail (for obvious reasons) but there is someone here in the New England area that's done exactly what you're saying Opie (I guess great minds think alike). They're using the "little car" along the lines of a "Thumper" signal... it's a bit more complicated than that, but I can't tip everything.
I do recall, about 20-years ago, an ad in Genii for a means by which to cause a Tv Screen to go static... some guy on the east coast was selling it.
I'm not certain I'm following the thing about Legal Searches and Warrants but, as I understand it, if "Probable Cause" exists, no warrant is needed. Add to this today's paranoia with the so-called "Patriot" Act, etc. any aspect of law enforcement essentially has the right to nail you anytime and anyway they wish.... MASSIVE LOOP HOLES now days.
Another thought on this... given the paranoia and ignorance that's so amuck in our present world, getting caught with such a device COULD place you on a "Watch List" at minimum, if not get you tossed in a far away prison as a potential terrorist (especially if your political views run contrary to the current administration.)
It's something to think about, know what I mean?
