Default Wireless power

I came across this handy way of getting power to my garden shed. Has anyone tried them?

I have often wished for wireless extension cords, but my stick-in-the-mud physicist of a husband keeps telling me it cannot be done.

I’ll show him this! Hah!!

And he'll ask, 'What are you going to do with a few milliwatts?'

I noticed that the "availability" spot on the right says, "No suing." Whatever does that mean? You click on "Info" and "No suing" isn't one of their statuses listed. When did this appear on ThinkGeek? Today, April 1st? I like the warning about not putting living things between them, "Just in case."

Well, micro-watts, but that was about the reaction.

Oh my. This brings to mind an episode of the British television series "The Avengers" ... this one starred my favorite incarnations of Steed and Peel, Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg ... in which the villain turned on a "broadcast power" transmitter, outfitted himself with aluminium [note the spelling] gel and rubber-soled boots and went around murdering people just by touching them.

John

outfitted himself with aluminium [note the spelling] gel

There's nothing wrong with the spelling: that's how IUPAC spells it; it's derived from alumina and -ium, the recognized ending for the names of metals. The name 'aluminium gel' though is a figment of the script writer's imagination (like the physics).
