Hacking to save lives…

From the MakeZine Blog, a report of an attempt to aid American troops in Iraq. Roadside bombs are jury rigged from FRS radios, and set to explode when particular code sequences are sent over the FRS. A 7 watt amplifier and a little Basic Stamp will send all potential detonating codes, and hopefully trigger the explosive device before troops can get in the way. MAKE: Blog: Hacking for GIs
